BOOK TALK: How to Save the World in Six (Not So Easy) Steps

We all depend heavily on nonprofits — for education, health care, social services, spiritual fulfillment, and much more. But unfortunately, too many nonprofits let us down, hobbled by inefficiency, infighting, and inertia. So what should we do?

In his new book, “How to Save the World in Six (Not So Easy) Steps: Bringing Out the Best in Nonprofits,” David Schizer, Harvey R. Miller Professor of Law and Economics and Dean Emeritus at Columbia Law School, exposes the root causes of these problems and explains how to solve them.

He also highlights impressive achievements by distinguished nonprofits, including 92NY’s launch of Giving Tuesday. David will be joined by key players in that launch — Asha Curran, CEO of GivingTuesday; Stuart Ellman, founder and general partner at RRE Ventures; and Henry Timms, president and CEO of Lincoln Center — to reflect on the secrets of its success. The session will be moderated by Sandra Navalli OAM ’03, adjunct assistant professor and managing director of the Tamer Center for Social Enterprise.
