Posted by on October 9th, 2015

“To have meaning in my life, I have to have meaning in my work.”

Deval Patrick, Bain Capital

rsz_21thursdayplenaryMore and more individuals are coming to realize they too must have meaning in their work in order to have meaning in their lives. New opportunities for impact at scale are emerging as major institutional players are joining the field. Whereas Wednesday’s plenary focused on the amazing history of the impact space and looked to longtime leaders in this field for their perspective on the moment we are in, Thursday’s plenary was about new sectors and new industries and traditional players coming to a new understanding about their roles.

The audience at SOCAP15 heard from various segments, including anchor institutions, major financial institutions, and some of the largest foundations, that are making commitments to impact that fit the resources, scale, and skills of their organization. This distinguished panel discussed these commitments, as well as what is on the horizon, and where collaboration across silos is increasing to accelerate change.
