Bring your lunch and join GlobalPDX and Caliopy Glaros for a Lunch & Learn on August 15th! Caliopy Glaros has helped organizations worldwide transform their donor engagement strategies into catalysts for positive social change.
Since the term “poverty porn” first appeared in 1981, much has been said about the exploitation of human suffering to inspire charitable giving. Yet four decades later, many organizations still struggle to communicate their impact in a way that authentically represents the issue and preserves the dignity of those affected by it. How do we portray our program participants as their own agents of change, while admitting that they also need our help?
In a refreshing take on this provocative issue, Caliopy Glaros of Philanthropy without Borders provides an innovative approach to building capacity for empathy while motivating others to action. Attendees will leave this session with a new means of evaluating interactions between donors, staff, and program participants, as well as tools they can begin implementing right away.
