Ready for the path forward? Join these speakers at this Thursday’s Advance conference

November 11, 2020 Category: EventFeaturedPurposeShort
ADVANCE 2020 is a half-day virtual conference from Generocity dedicated to progressing ideas, organizations, and professionals that drive smarter impact.

Breathe a sigh of relief. Election “week” is over. Now it’s time to get back to your full focus on making this world a better place. And what better time than now to refresh that vision? Tomorrow’s ADVANCE conference seeks to give you new tools and ideas to help move your mission and career forward. 

With a range of speakers and sessions, this year’s conference will help you embrace the new “now” with clarity and renewed vigor.  

This year’s virtual conference will focus on recovery and resiliency in the social impact sector. In addition to a range of speakers, the conference will include virtual breakout sessions for attendees to debrief and reflect. 

From our Partners

The conference schedule is as follows:

  • 9:00 – 9:30am – Welcome!
  • 9:30 – 10:00am – How has Philadelphia’s just recovery gone so far?
  • 10:30 – 11:00am – What must Philadelphia do to be better prepared for the next crisis?
  • 11:30 – 12:00pm – Real world policy changes for poverty alleviation now
  • 12:30 – 1:00pm – What can philanthropy and venture capital teach each other about solutions?
  • 1:30 – 2:00pm – How technology can help, and hurt, communities of color?
  • 2:30 – 3:00pm – How to take protests to policy
  • 3:20 – 3:30pm – Farewell

*Each discussion will be promptly followed by a 20-minute breakout session and a 10-minute break.

In the midst of a pandemic, a profound shift in presidential change of power, an economic recession, and a national fight for racial justice, it is difficult to see a clear way forward; ADVANCE 2020 can provide some clarity, insight, and solutions.
