Sep 20 2022 • 47 mins

This episode – The Future of US Based NGO Leadership - was recorded at our 2021 Goalmakers annual conference and is moderated by Akhtar Badshah, Distinguished Practitioner & Senior Lecturer at the University of Washington, and author of Purpose Mindset.

Akhtar interviews three outstanding leaders of incredibly effective and respected organizations.

Nikolaj Gilbert, CEO of PATH, Janti Soeripto, President & CEO of Save the Children, and Atul Tandon, CEO of Opportunity International, all talk about how through listening and understanding at the local level, they realized more could be done, and they could be even more effective by creating regional, country-based structures for decision making and ownership.

But these transitions have had their own set of unique challenges, as you may have guessed. Let’s hear what those challenges were, how they approached them, and the benefits gained from these power shifts.
