    Let's Talk: TEDtalk

    Join us for a viewing of Dan Pallotta's TED Talk "The way we think about charity is dead wrong" and a lively discussion afterwards with your fellow young nonprofit professionals! 

    Here's a blurb on the video: "Activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend -- not for what they get done. Instead of equating frugality with morality, he asks us to start rewarding charities for their big goals and big accomplishments (even if that comes with big expenses). In this bold talk, he says: Let's change the way we think about changing the world."

    Exciting, right? Potentially controversial, even! Come share your thoughts and enjoy some tasty morsels with your colleagues.

    Location: TBD.
