About the workshop, 3:00-5:30 pm:
The afternoon workshop, “Social Media Mindsets and Tool Sets for Nonprofit Leaders,” will be led by Beth Kanter. Kanter is a master trainer, blogger, speaker, and author of two books, The Networked Nonprofit and Measuring the Networked Nonprofit. The workshop is intended for executive directors and organizational leaders that work for nonprofits and want to learn tips and techniques for scaling their organizations using social media. The workshop will provide a mix of content and time for discussion/reflection so leaders can begin to change their organizations from the inside out to scale the benefits of using social media for social good. They also will leave with many practical tips and suggestions for using social media tools to achieve impact for themselves and their organizations.

About the reception, 5:30-6:30 pm:
Following the workshop, a reception will be held at the 92Y Tribeca for all attendees of the event.  Stanford alumni, nonprofit leaders, social media experts, and the general public are invited to mingle from 5:30 to 6:30pm and enjoy drinks and snacks (no host bar). 

About the evening conversation, 6:30-8:00 pm:
Stanford scholars Rob Reich and Lucy Bernholz to will address a New York audience to share their far-sighted thinking on the future of good, part of the pair’s ReCoding Good in the 21st Century project. At Stanford, Rob and Lucy are engaged in leading-edge research exploring 21st Century, technology-driven innovations in philanthropy and civil society. Their talk will widen perspectives on everything from philanthropy’s uneasy relationship to democracy to how big data and the sharing economy are transforming giving.  An audience Q&A will follow the evening conversation.

The evening conversation will be kicked off by Stanford PACS Executive Director Kim Meredith and 92Y Deputy Executive Director Henry Timms who will provide an overview of the recently-launched  #GivingTuesday and how scholars, leaders, and practitioners are driving social giving.
