Announcing Our 2015 Annual Conference PhilTalks

Thursday, May 7, 2015

NCG staff has put a lot of thought into designing this year’s annual conference content. The day is divided into 3 distinct sections:

  • Setting the Stage
  • Implications
  • Solutions

PhilTalks | Solutions

Earlier this year NCG put out a call for PhilTalk proposals. What’s a PhilTalk? A PhilTalk is a 15-minute presentation that explores an idea, solution or approach to a challenge we are confronting in our philanthropic work.  Think TedTalk, but for Philanthropy.

We’re pleased to announce the selected PhilTalks for our upcoming Annual Conference:
