Sessions & Breakouts

Breakout Session: “Closing the Empathy Gap: Unlocking Resources; Time, Talent & Treasure”

We need to change the conversation to shift from operating in a scarcity mindset and operating in the starvation cycle. It is time we recognize the abundance of resources that are available in each of our communities. The problem is not the lack of resources, it is that we have not cracked the code on the strategic unlocking and deployment of resources, due to a gap in empathy between the people that hold these resources and the people on the ground who need them.

As the gap between business leaders in the tech world and local nonprofit leaders continue to grow, it is becoming increasingly important to provide community, infrastructure and programs that help to close the empathy gap. Furthermore, once that gap is closed it is critical that there is a framework that leads to increased resources of time, talent & treasure being unlocked for the social impact community in a more purposeful manner.  Full Circle Fund will give us a deep dive into the programs launched to address this gap, in turn accelerating change by dramatically increasing the resources available to local community based organizations.
