The Philanthropic Initiative was founded on the belief that philanthropy has a power to transform. TPI provides consulting and program management services to help individuals, families, foundations, and companies increase the impact of their philanthropy while also working to promote effective philanthropy across the sector. And here to discuss all of this in some detail, it’s a pleasure to have Leslie Pine, the managing partner of The Philanthropic Initiative.
Most every citizen around the world is concerned about human rights and shudders at the thought of another person’s rights being violated. And that is why we should all be grateful that there is an organization solely dedicated to this – always vigilant, 24/7, 365 days a year, all around the world– exposing human rights abuses like torture, violence against women, and child exploitation. It is Human Rights Watch, and it is a great pleasure to have with us this evening their Executive Director, Kenneth Roth.
