The theme for our third season is Leadership, as it relates to the social change sector. We will be exploring a range of topics, including the general tone of what’s happening with leadership in the overall sector, the role of leadership in nonprofits today, philanthropy and leadership, lack of opportunities for people of color and much more.
Season 2 of the Social Change Diaries podcast takes a deep dive into the Philanthropy eco-system. We see this season as a way to highlight the shifts in giving, address opportunities and challenges faced by the sector and familiarize the audience with the new giving code. We are including key foundations, individual donors, advisors, CEOs and development officers in this conversation, to glean what’s happening now, what’s on the horizon and how nonprofits can best position themselves to garner more financial support.
Social Change Diaries Season 1

In 2017, we kicked off the first season of the Social Changes Diaries with the topic of Women and Thought Leadership. It was a phenomenal season, with deep insights from some powerhouse leaders in the sector today: Melissa Harris-Perry, Ai-jen Poo, Abigail Disney, Jacki Zehner, Ana Oliveira, Saru Jayaraman, Marianne Schnall, Erica Payne and Rinku Sen. From personal experiences to expert observations, we immersed in the topic, encouraging listeners to think about their own evolution into thought leadership.
