Opening Plenary

Your host Aliza ‘Alice’ Napartivaumnuay, co-founder of Social Giver, invites three speakers to answer three crucial questions:

What changes and trends are shaping the context within which you work? In response, Ruth Shapiro CEO, Centre for Asian Philanthropy and Society, will share insights from the 2018 ‘Doing Good Index’.
