Transformational Leadership

During this inspiring Fireside Chat, New York Times bestseller and former CEO of the Robin Hood Foundation, Wes Moore, will share his inspiring life story and perspective on how philanthropy can help address poverty.

Wes led the Robin Hood Foundation to one of its strongest years in the anti-poverty group’s 33-year history in 2020 – raising over $230 million as the organization filled a critical role in response to the pandemic.

With Mary Thomas moderating, Wes will share how he transformed Robin Hood by restructuring and refocusing the grantmaking portfolio, executing relief efforts in response to COVID-19, expanding the organization's role through policymaking, and launching several initiatives — including a national partnership and the Power Fund to increase support for nonprofits led by people of color.
