In this learning circle, we will discuss the challenges of community-building and open sharing for philanthropists and social investors in Asia. While learning from peers and collaborating is essential for amplifying one’s impact, it is often difficult for funders to overcome the barriers to open sharing in order to learn from and work with each other.
How do we elevate the practice of philanthropy in Asia by fostering peer learning and collaboration and overcoming the tendency to work in isolation?
This is the question that we will be discussing in this learning circle along with our featured practitioner, Sheryl Fofaria, Head of Social Impact & Philanthropy for South East Asia, UBS. Sheryl will be sharing her experiences from engaging with funders across Asia over the last year, reflecting on the unique challenges and opportunities in Asian philanthropy as compared to the UK and other regions where Sheryl has worked.
