    Plan With, Not For: Why Community Engagement Is Essential

    Join the Urban Institute and the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth for the third installment in a week-long online forum that explores a pivotal challenge facing cities: how to achieve equity in the digital age.

    When resident voices are placed at the forefront, cities’ innovative technology policies can be more inclusive. What does community engagement look like in practice, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, when people cannot communicate or convene in traditional ways? Panelists from community and nonprofit organizations and government will highlight effective community engagement strategies in this moment and explain how they’re adapting.

    How to Ensure MSMEs Thrive Post COVID-19?

    The global pandemic has triggered an unprecedented surge of support for micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), in recognition of the critical role they play in national economies and global value chains, and because of their vulnerability as global economic activity grinds to a halt. COVID-19 is making an already challenging environment for MSMEs far worse, especially for informal businesses.

    At the same time, the global crisis has also exposed deeply entrenched, complex and interconnected challenges already facing MSMEs. These include access to finance, as well as markets and networks, availability of skills and information and the regulatory environment. As the agenda shifts towards rebuilding and recovery, experts are starting to highlight the need and the opportunity for a concerted effort to address these underlying issues and to build back a more supportive operating environment for MSMEs.

    Time:  3:00 PM – 4:00 PM GMT / 10 AM – 11 AM EDT

    From Coronavirus to Climate Change With Heather Grady

    A recent interview in Bloomberg Green with Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisor’s Heather Grady, co-founder of the SDG Philanthropy Forum, notes that “Resilience is emerging as the top financial theme of the new decade.” Grady asserts that, “As we talk about responses to Covid-19, there’s an interesting opportunity for environmentalists and people working on social problems in global supply chains to come together more. A just and resilient economy is what we have to create.”

    Few individuals have as rich a global perspective on social impact as Grady, whose career has included leading foundation initiatives at the Rockefeller Foundation, creating the first course on climate change and human rights at Columbia University, and as professor at the China Global Philanthropy Institute. In this virtual fireside chat, Impact Entrepreneur’s Laurie Lane-Zucker welcomes Heather Grady to discuss such subjects as:

    • What transformational opportunities exist for societies as they emerge from the Covid lockdown?
    • How does the failure to adequately prepare for a global pandemic illuminate the challenges of addressing other existential crises like systemic inequality, climate change and biodiversity loss?
    • What new operating principles should political, economic and philanthropic leaders be embracing in the “next normal?”
    • How has philanthropy failed to “be the change” it wants to see in the world, and be more effective at creating transformation and resilience?
    • How can impact entrepreneurs and impact investors embody post-Covid resilience in the businesses they create?
    • How can academia better prepare students for a resilient and sustainable future?

    Time: 12 PM – 1:15 PM EDT
