Overview:

Join our Education Circle for their second thought leadership event of 2017.

An evening fundraiser and panel with Marc Smolowitz, Director-Producer of the documentary in production: THE G WORD, the first feature-length theatrical documentary to fully examine what it means to be gifted. Marc will pre-screen clips from the film, discuss the process involved in making a feature documentary, and moderate a panel discussion on gifted education with other local Bay Area education leaders.

The goal of the panel discussion is to generate conversation that gets people excited to re-consider gifted/special education, learning differences and social justice/equity/access. Among many topics, our film is asking the question — “Who gets to be gifted in America and why?” We’re developing powerful and unexpected stories here, including giftedness within the prison system, that we are confident will support a dynamic national conversation about broader education policy issues.

Every woman should have the ability to control her own body and plan her family—whether she lives in San Francisco or Senegal.

Yet today, more than 225 million women worldwide who want to use modern family planning tools do not have access to them. And now they face new barriers, as changes in the global funding landscape affect family planning and a wide range of other sexual and reproductive health services for women at all stages of life.

We’re bringing together experts from local, national, and global organizations to talk about how innovative and evidence-based approaches can give women control over their sexual and reproductive health—and what you can do to support this basic human right.

Our panel includes:

  • Martha Brady, director of Reproductive Health, PATH

  • Margot Fahnestock, program officer for Global Development and Population, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation

  • Gilda Gonzales, interim CEO, Planned Parenthood Northern California

Kristen Hickey Pedersen, chair of the Health Circle, will moderate.

This event is cosponsored by PATH, a leader in global health innovation. And hosted by Covo a community of thinkers, doers, and collaborators committed to making change in the world while living life to the fullest.
