What is Giving Compass?
We connect donors to learning resources and ways to support community-led solutions. Learn more about us.
In 2018, the national venture philanthropy organization New Profit brought together pairs of donors and social entrepreneurs from their community for candid conversations on the future of social problem-solving. These “unlikely duos” were given thought-provoking questions to respond to and discuss on the spot, and we were able to see where a conversation can go when it’s centered on getting to know another person and her or his perspective, rather than the technical aspects of change-making. Relationships are fundamental to problem-solving, and these duos show us the power of two people from different backgrounds sharing insights and ideas on forward-leaning solutions.
In Episode Five of this video series, social entrepreneurs Rebecca Onie (co-founder and CEO Emerita, Health Leads) and Laura Weidman Powers ( co-founder, Code2040) discuss the pursuit of social change and transformative leadership.
