Philanthropy New York is launching its CEO Interview Series, a set of intimate, engaging and thought-provoking conversations on the future of philanthropy. Moderated by Darren Walker (Ford Foundation), the live interviews will feature CEOs who are advancing some of the most interesting, innovative change in the sector. Think “Inside the Actors Studio,” but with more gravitas.
Our first program in this series will feature Atlantic Philanthropies’ President and CEO Christopher Oechsli. Appointed last year to guide Atlantic in both concluding its grantmaking and securing its legacy, Mr. Oechsli comes to his post with more than 17 years of service to Atlantic and related organizations. He and Mr. Walker will discuss Atlantic Philanthropies founder Chuck Feeney’s commitment to “giving while living,” the foundation’s vision of how its work will outlive its grantmaking, and what issues and risks foundation leaders should anticipate on the horizon.
We will leave ample time for audience discussion; an informal wine-and-cheese reception will follow the formal program.
- What Christopher Oechsli and the foundation’s trustees envision as the most urgent challenges and opportunities facing our sector and the world.
