Since 2013, the Taproot Foundation and BMW Foundation have convened the leaders of the pro bono movement to share challenges and best practices among peers. The summit format and location change each year to accommodate the varied needs of attendees.
The 2016 Global Pro Bono Summit will be held in Singapore and draw CSR and pro bono movement leaders from over 23 countries. The Summit challenges pro bono movement leaders to identify ways to increase their impact and hold each other accountable to delivering and facilitating pro bono work that drives social change.
Participants will include Global Fellows who are pro bono providers (“intermediaries”) belonging to the Global Pro Bono Network and corporate leaders in pro bono programing. Participants seek to collaborate with their peers and partners, share best practices and learnings, and create strategies to provide more high-quality and high-impact pro bono service. Ideas and topics that surface during the course of these three days aim to transform into actionable commitments for the coming year.
The US Pro Bono Summit will be held April 13-14, 2016 in Los Angeles, California.
