In this “Explore Our World” post, I’m sharing my admiration for a group of people who enthusiastically leap into challenges and invite the rest of us to join them as they improve the world one big idea at a time. I hope you’ll enjoy meeting these magnificent millennials!

In the latest “Events that Inspire”, I’m featuring Amplifier’s West Coast Convening—a full day focused on how to bring people with shared values and interests together to amplify their potential for positive impact. I’m delighted to share a little about the event–which was fabulous–and some of what I learned in the hopes that it’s valuable to my network and encourages more people to connect their communities and their values in order to strengthen their giving power.
