Southern California Grantmakers, November 19, 2008

For those in SoCal, the authors of The Measure of America will be giving a plenary speech at the Southern California Grantmakers 35th Annual Conference on November 19th. From the conference website:

The Measure of America: American Human Development Report (AHDR) presents a nuanced portrait of America that reflects national trends and regional challenges. As foundations in Southern California seek to create thriving communities, the findings from this report will better inform where and how grant monies should be allocated. The plenary panelists will discuss why the American Human Development Index is a stronger measure of American well-being than any single measure of health, education or income indicators, and how the report’s findings can be used by grantmakers to raise the level of human development in our region.
