Since an amazing 11% of people work for non-profits and “charity work” has become a fully recognized profession, it’s appropriate that university programs and training conferences have popped up.
The Craigslist Foundation Bootcamp is a rising example. This year’s intensive one-day conference brought together a record 1500 professionals working for non-profits, business and government at University of California Berkeley.
They gathered to learn more about building cause based movements and strengthening civil society, particularly through emerging technologies.
A wrap-up panel was stuffed with cutting edge voices such as Ethos Water founder Jonathan Greenblatt, Idealist.org founder Ami Dar, Shirley Sagawa, Craigslist founder Craig Newmark, and Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington.
With all these high profile social good events swirling around our neighborhood, btrax is proud of our collobrative work for organizations such as the Keizai Society, SVJEN, Urasenke Foundation, Govit, and the Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor.
We’re always looking for focused and forward thinking groups, so drop us a line!
