WINGSForum 2014: The Power of Networks (Conference Report)Jul 15, 2014
From 27-29 March 2014, 174 WINGS members, network participants, funders, and peers in the philanthropic sector convened on Istanbul, Turkey, for WINGSForum 2014. Plenary and concurrent sessions featured stories, case studies and practical tools, through roundtable discussions and interactive sessions, and the event marked the launch of the WINGS report, Infrastructure in Focus, which represents a starting point to build a comprehensive picture of global philanthropy infrastructure. WINGS is a meta-network and its growth attests to its success, but what wider effects does it have? And what can philanthropic networks contribute to the greater issues of the day? The WINGSForum 2014 post-conference report explores these questions and more, summarizing findings by third parties inclusive of the Alliance Publishing Trust and CENTRIS.
