Quick Nexus Update (in Pictures)

A mentioned earlier this week, Jaime, Naoko, and I are participating in the Nexus Global Youth Summit on Innovative Philanthropy and Social Entrepreneurship. It’s been a busy, but inspiring, 48 hours! We’ve met lots of interesting and inspiring attendees so far, from a woman running her family’s foundation that feeds poor communities in Malawi, to representatives of well-known NGOs like Amnesty International, to someone who specializes in organizing the toppling of dictatorships…seriously. Here’s just three photos from my experience so far...

Amazing surprise appearance and talk by
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (you have to squint…)

Conference “survival guide” and
neat microphone in UN meeting room

Thursday is another packed day. This morning's agenda includes the panel Jaime is participating in, Metrics of Philanthropy and Impact. Stay tuned for more highlights!
