Abby Maxman, President & CEO of Oxfam America, says, “Increasingly, philanthropy has become a pre-requisite to creating sustainable change and altering social landscapes. At Oxfam, we know that philanthropy is the critical difference between simply keeping people alive and empowering people to help build better lives for themselves. And by changing lives, together we change the world.”

These days, philanthropy comes in many packages, and increasingly the most effective initiatives are multisector partnerships of corporate, social, and government organizations. Join us for a discussion of the essential elements of effective collaboration across these sectors, and the challenges in working through barriers to collaboration.  We’ll also be looking at these collaborations through a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion lens, as we consider both issues and potential solutions. And, of course, we are always interested in learning about the paths that took our speakers to their current leadership positions.

This Community Salute will include the presentation of The Boston Club’s 2019 Advancement Award to a local organization that offers programs addressing women’s fundamental health issues, both physical and mental, to establish long term personal and family health.

And we’ll share with you the results of our 2019 Census of Women Directors & Chief Executives of Massachusetts’ Largest Nonprofit Organizations.
