With many upcoming professional conferences cancelled, and as we all continue to sort through the constantly evolving messaging surrounding the situation, there is an even greater need to come together as an industry to have frank conversations around how COVID-19 is impacting philanthropy, healthcare, the global economy, and corporate social responsibility – and what we can collectively do about it.

With many folks enjoying summer Fridays, we have moved FORGING FORWARD to Thursdays at 11:30 AM EDT, for the remainder of the summer.

Our 18th session will take place this Thursday, August 6th at 11:30 AM EDT. 

During the session, Brian Crimmins, CEO of Changing Our World and Global Managing Partner of ONE HUNDRED, will cover two topics:

First, we will be discussing: CHANGES WITHIN AN ORGANIZATION DURING CHALLENGING TIMES with Creighton Drury, CEO of Partnership to End Addiction.

Then we will shift our conversation to focus on: THE NEW WORLD FOR COLLEGE ATHLETICS & IMPLICATIONS FOR ADVANCEMENT with Ed Kull, Director of Athletics & Senior Director of Development at Fordham University.
