Wednesday, May 4, 2011 / 8:00 am - 9:15 am

When they turn to philanthropy, they often utilize the same kind of inventive approach - and they expect to accelerate solutions.

And today, with jobs in short supply and government budgets feeling the squeeze, their role is more crucial than ever. Join a panel of philanthropists as they discuss meaningful and tangible ways to advance human welfare by promoting economic growth and bringing more people into economic participation.
