Omidyar Network Executive Forum Unites Business Leaders Investing In Social Change

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

One network of top executives is proving that good business means wise investments — specifically investments in people who have the power to create global change but may simply lack opportunity.

The Omidyar Network Executive Forum, created by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, will bring together CEOs, executive directors and industry experts bent on using business to create social change. The annual conference is being held in Silicon Valley May 8-10.

The Omidyar Network is a philanthropic investment firm that supports nonprofits and for-profits that positively impact disadvantaged communities worldwide. The network’s annual forum will open the floor for attendees to share the latest ideas in investment areas such as microfinance and technology aimed at improving people’s lives.
