Throughout the year, Stanford PACS hosts an array of events touching on areas of focus. Many of our events are open to the public, while some are invitation-only or focused on convening specific groups of scholars and practitioners to further issue-specific discussions.
The Active Citizen in the Digital Age is an ongoing speaker series highlighting the range of ways people are using digital technologies to make a difference – politically, charitably, as volunteers, and with their career, consumer, and investing choices.
In addition to our annual schedule of events, Stanford PACS hosts two signature events on a regular schedule. We host a Junior Scholars Forum each year and our Philanthropy Innovation Summit every two years.
For the public launch of the new book, Engine of Impact, John Hennessy will interview authors Bill Meehan and Kim Jonker, with a special introduction by Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen. Join us!
