Now perhaps more than ever, philanthropy's support of transformative solutions is critical to solving the world's most pressing problems. While many philanthropists have spent years, even decades, funding charitable causes and encouraging others to do the same, a vast amount of philanthropic capital remains dormant.

How can philanthropy be more strategic in its grant making, impact investing, and advocacy to bring about meaningful change? How are high-capacity philanthropists encouraging their peers to expand their strategic philanthropy investments? On this panel, philanthropic leaders will share what it takes to step off the sidelines, engage in holistic and strategic philanthropy, and be a true agent for change.
