What I enjoy most when working with a partner

Being a part of dynamic and innovative private, public and communal initiatives that seek to bring social change through leveraging philanthropy allows me to observe and experience the politics, policies and practices of social change directly. In addition, working with partners that are receptive to exploring and evaluating the power and practice of philanthropy for global social change makes my work deeply gratifying.
