The content to fuel our discussion and reflection at our Salon on Investing In Our Communities was:
The Economist, The Centenarians Square up – IBM v Carnegie Corporation
LifeSpring Hospitals: Bringing Maternity Care to Poor Mothers in India
Opening Doors: In Vancouver’s East End: Strathcona, by Joe Cortina and Janet Elder. Story excerpt, “Rosa Pryor”
Whether in a boardroom in New York or on an investee field trip in Pakistan, Acumen Fund has a tradition of sharing everyone’s ‘ah-ha’ after a good discussion has been had.
We ask Acumen Salon guests to share their ah-ha moments – the key take away, new perspective, memorable comment or parting thought – from the evening.
Our hope is that these thoughts will spark further conversations online and will perhaps trigger a few reflections within others.
