Our Ideas / Events
We foster cross-sector support and personal connections by convening our community in a range of intimate and global settings.
Big Bold Benefit
This annual celebration of our vast and dedicated community is an inspiring evening of connecting with Fellows, recommitting to positive social impact, and looking ahead to the innovations that will shape our world in the years to come. Benefit sponsors and guests will be the first to welcome the 2017 class of Fellows. We promise you will come away with new ideas, inspired in your own work, and optimistic about the future of social change.
All Fellows Conference
What do you get when you bring hundreds of social change leaders together in one room? The Echoing Green All Fellows Conference is an annual gathering bringing together the world’s most promising social entrepreneurs, industry professionals, corporate champions, impact investors, and thought leaders for a full itinerary of peer learning workshops, presentations, and advisory sessions. In 2016, Fellows were joined in Atlanta, GA, by nearly 200 guests and alumni.
This morning talk series features short, inspiring presentations of our Fellows' work and Q&As led by a guest from our community. It is an opportunity for our online audience and those new to Echoing Green to engage with our staff, friends, and Fellows, and take away a new perspective.
New Fellows Retreat
Each new class of Fellows convenes in New York to spend an intensive week focusing on building strong bonds with the other Fellows in their cohorts and with the Echoing Green staff, and learning from seasoned Fellows who can offer invaluable first-hand lessons. These relationships and foundations form the base of Echoing Green support, and will often continue long after their initial funding period.
Partners and advisors from across our network offer their business acumen to guide Fellows tackling some of their most pressing challenges. These Brain Trusts are our unique, facilitated advisory sessions that provide specific and actionable advice on an array of topics, including metrics, marketing, and human resources.
Echoing Green and our Fellows are deeply engaged with the broader social innovation and social impact community. Whether it's at Skoll World Forum, SOCAP, or SXSW, we're there to exchange ideas and reconnect with local networks, as well as hosting a slate of our own events in the San Fransisco Bay area and New York City.
