Leading With Passion: Women in Philanthropy

On Wednesday, March 20, over 150 women and men gathered in a beautiful sunlit (and then super moonlit) room inside New Balance’s headquarters in Brighton to hear a distinguished panel of passionate women who had each started at least one nonprofit of their own. Moderated by Lisbeth Tarlow, the panel included Betty Francisco, Andrea Silbert, Reverend Cheng Imm Tan, and Renata von Tscharner. The panelists shared their experiences building boards, finding funding, marketing their causes and even succession planning, which they all agreed can be difficult when so much of the founder is embedded into an organization they’ve founded.

Thank you to New Balance for sponsoring and hosting this great event.
