Perspectives on Philanthropy Discussion Series with Eileen O'Connor

Host Organization: Lilly Family School of Philanthropy


About the event

As we search for context in our transforming world, what role does philanthropy play? Broadly understood to encompass the human voluntary spirit, philanthropy is responding in a variety of ways. How is it doing and what role will it have in the world that is emerging?

We will engage figures who have important perspectives on how philanthropy affects our civic life now and moving forward. We hope to learn from these varied viewpoints. Join us for these live conversations so you can ask questions, engage with others, and inform your own perspective on our changing context.

About Eileen O’Connor

Eileen O’Connor joined The Rockefeller Foundation in 2019 as the Senior Vice President for Communications, Policy, and Advocacy, serving as a strategic adviser to the President, Dr. Rajiv J. Shah on special projects, policy, positioning, advocacy, and content management designed to achieve programmatic impact across the Foundation.

Her team takes an interdisciplinary approach to advocacy, partnering with program teams to create and execute strategies that create systemic impact. CPA is central to organizing expert voices to structure operational roadmaps to change, such as the Global COVID-19 Vaccination Action plan, the K-12 Testing strategy, and the creation of functioning coalitions like the State and Territorial Alliance for Testing (“STAT”), which the Biden Administration utilized for school re-opening and equitable and more rapid vaccine distribution.
