SVP is bold and bright—and we look a little bit different in each community. We invite you to get engaged in a personal way as you explore this website by selecting your own colors!
The conference is an opportunity for the SVP Network to collaborate on a big scale. Hundreds of business, nonprofit and foundation leaders, board chairs, social entrepreneurs, and venture philanthropists come together every fall. It is a place where energy, ideas, optimism and action converge. This year we are Seattle-bound!
Kristof and WuDunn have authored three best-selling books together including Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. Their most recent book, A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity, with the three part television documentary of the same name, is currently airing in the U.S. on local Public Broadcasting Stations. A website is dedicated to engaging global citizens to connect, learn and take action for a better world. On Kristof’s Facebook page, he features his New York Times op-ed columns and you can access clips of the documentary series.
Kristof and WuDunn will share their galvanizing narrative about making a difference in the world and offer a road map to becoming the most effective global citizens we can be. Their stories will come from what they’ve gleaned from people around the world who are using research, evidence-based strategies, and brilliant ideas to make the world a better place – people a lot like SVP partners!
