As Lebanon struggles with a corrupt and paralyzed government, economic collapse, and the aftermath of the Beirut explosion, civil society is under pressure to demonstrate leadership in the face of unprecedented demands. Social investor and thought leader Lynn Zovighian will share a unique perspective on the international donor community's response to Lebanon's spiraling crises: her family business, The Zovighian Partnership, is recognized as an independent monitor of humanitarian aid entering the country. Lynn will also make the case for building the data, governance, and operational capacities of community-based organizations to engage local communities in meeting their own critical needs and shaping Lebanon's future.

Faculty guest:
Maria Ivanova, Director, School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs. 

This event is part of the Social Impact Lab's weeklong series From Boston to Beirut: Reimagining Social Change in the Middle East.

We recognize that members of our community will be observing Yom Kippur October 4-5 and wish you a meaningful holy day and fast. We will make the recordings of all events available on the event website as soon as possible so you can have access to the content. We also encourage students to attend one of the three student-only workshops with Lynn Zovighian on Thursday, October 6 and Friday, October 7.
