From Schoolyard Bullying and Culture Wars to a Polarized Democracy: What Role can Philanthropy Play in Restoring Civility to our Society?

Every other year, CNJG brings together recognized thought leaders from both the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors for a conversation exploring topics of critical interest to the future of the social sector. The 2012 Spring Colloquium brought together Professor Appiah, David Bornstein, Cathy Raphael and Chris Satullo, to speak about how the loss of civility in our society impacts the work we do, what this means for the social sector, and what role foundations and nonprofits can play in addressing this sickness.
