The NYC Launch party was a huge success (check out the pictures), so we’re ready for more. Lean Impact lands in DC tomorrow and will launch at the Lost Society on 14th St. Join us for the chance to network with powerful and motivated social innovators.
Three leaders in particular will share their stories at the launch. We heard from a wide array of people making things happen in DC in response to our contest, but these three stood out the most. Take a minute to learn their stories and don’t miss them in person on Tuesday:
John Brougher, NGP VAN
John serves as the Vice President of Marketing and Nonprofit Sales for NGP VAN. He has a passion for progressive politics, new media, and marketing. John also founded and manages the MaleFeminists.com blog that strives to be a strong ally in the broader fight for equality.
NGP VAN is the leading technology provider to Democratic and progressive campaigns and organizations, offering clients an integrated platform of the best fundraising, compliance, field, organizing, new media, and social networking products.
Alison Gold, Living Cities
Alison Gold is the Assistant Director of Knowledge & Impact at Living Cities. Her aim is to “hack” the culture of social change practitioners, funders and policymakers in order to create open and frank opportunities to learn about successes and failures, advance the best and most current thinking from Living Cities’ work and others, drive efficient use of resources, and achieve population-level results for low-income people.
Founded in 1991, Living Cities is an innovative philanthropic collaborative of 22 of the world’s largest foundations and financial institutions. Living Cities blends the collective financial resources of its members and deploys their collective knowledge and experience to improve the lives of low-income people and the cities where they live.
Kate McElligott – Grameen Foundation
Kate McElligott is the Senior Manager of Thought Leadership and Strategic Partnerships at the Grameen Foundation. She just finished conducting research on risk, innovation, and experimentation in the social sector in conjunction with the Case Foundation Social Innovation team.
Grameen Foundation helps the world’s poorest, especially women, improve their lives and escape poverty by helping to provide access to appropriate financial services (such as small loans and savings accounts), new ways to generate income, and important information about their health, crops and finances.
