Case Foundation charts a course for creating social change
Guest post by Michael Smith
The Case Foundation
Earlier this year, inspired by the need to find new ways to tackle entrenched problems, CEO Jean Case announced The Case Foundation’s intention to Be Fearless. In the tradition of the some of the greatest social movements of our time, we’re looking to join with our partners to be bold, take risks and “fail forward.” And we want you — the change-makers, the do-gooders, the funders and the connectors — to join us on this journey, too!
In the past few months, we’ve been working with partners to scour the landscape and define what it means to be fearless and outline a clear set of values that are at the root of every fearless approach to creating change.
Today, co-founders Jean and Steve Case will be interviewed by noted author, historian and CEO of the Aspen Institute, Walter Isaacson, about the Case Foundation’s 15 years in philanthropy and our current journey to Be Fearless. You’ll also hear from a distinguished group of our dynamic — and fearless — partners, including Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, Tom Tierney, founder and chairman of the Bridgespan Group and Barbara Bush, CEO and co-founder of Global Health Corps.
Are you ready to Be Fearless? If so, please join us for a live online discussion about what it means to Be Fearless, to share your thoughts and to pledge to Be Fearless with us.Details:
