30 April 2020, Webinar: The Evolution of Silicon Valley Philanthropy: “Disruption” and the Implications for Educational Development in Pandemic Times

This webinar will take place on Thursday 30 April 2020 from 12:15 to 13:00.

Tracing the contours of evolving philanthropic engagement among technology philanthropists in Silicon Valley, this presentation will address two central questions: how has the relationship between philanthropy and business changed among Silicon Valley donors over time? And, what are the potential implications of these emerging philanthropic practices for education development in pandemic times?

This is the third event in the “Graduate Institute Education Series” organised by NORRAG in collaboration with IHEID Interdisciplinary Programme.

Speaker: Lara Patil, NORRAG Advisor
