On June 13 in Boston, Massachusetts, hundreds of individuals will gather under one roof for one purpose: to collaborate for the greater good. People from all walks of life, from across the globe will join forces to discuss progress in the social sector and the innovative methods that drive change in today’s world.

The Collaborative is a three-day learning experience that will include keynotes, panel discussions, and breakout sessions on topics such as data and technology, the future of measuring impact, fundraising best practices, and more.

But beyond the subject material, the most valuable component of the event is the people you’ll meet.

This was one of the most impactful events I’ve attended. I found tremendous inspiration in exchanging ideas with some of the best socially responsible and passionate leaders in the world!

But ultimately, the thing that seems to resonate most with past attendees year after year is the connections they make with people they didn’t realize they shared so much in common with.

This year at the Collaborative, we invite you to meet:
