New York, NY 10128
Reception begins 5:15; program begins promptly at 5:45 with a welcome from Rabbi Peter J. Rubinstein, Director of Jewish Community and Bronfman Center for Jewish Life at 92Y.
Join Henry Timms, President and CEO, 92Y and co-author of the bestselling book New Power: How Power Works in Our Hyperconnected World—and How to Make It Work for You, speaking with JFN's President & CEO Andrés Spokoiny for a conversation on how the world of philanthropy is changing with the rise of "new power".
Dorothy Tananbaum, former JFN board chair, current board officer, and friend of 92Y, will facilitate the discussion.
In New Power, Henry Timms and Jeremy Hiemans confront the biggest stories of our time—the rise of mega-platforms like Facebook and Uber; the out-of-nowhere victories of Obama and Trump; the unexpected emergence of movements like #MeToo—and reveal what's really behind them: the rise of "new power." "Old power" was out of reach for the vast majority of people. But our ubiquitous connectivity makes possible a different kind of power: open, participatory, and peer-driven, more like a current than a currency. In this conversation, Henry, Andrés, and Dorothy will discuss how funders can understand new power and use this understanding to unleash powerful change for good.
This event is for JFN members and others by invitation only. Space is limited. RSVP (below) by November 30.
