The New Continuum
The driving principles behind investment and philanthropic strategies have historically been unrelated, but we are beginning to see a convergence of these themes among ultra-high net worth individuals and families. This whitepaper aims to function as a blueprint on aligning your interests, investments and impact.
One way your philanthropy can be much more powerful, is by adding an extra layer. In other words, by applying a lens or a perspective to your giving. Think of a lens as putting on spectacles. Out of one lens of the spectacles, you consider your focus area, such as maternal and newborn health - or education for marginalized children. Out of the other lens, you recognize that unless you also tackle challenges such as gender imbalances, climate change or inequality, you can’t achieve your goal. Your vision is optimum only when it is the combination of what each eye sees. And that’s exactly what we’ll be discussing in today’s session ‘Applying a lens to your philanthropy’. Join Dr. Nalini Tarakeshwar, Head of Programs and Monitoring and Evaluation, UBS Optimus Foundation, for a discussion with Dr. Muhammad Ali Pate, Julio Frenk Professor of Public Health Leadership, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and Kennedy Odede, Co-founder and CEO, Shining Hope for Communities (SHOFCO).
