A new generation of California leaders is doing things their way — and, let’s say, they’re not afraid to make waves. Stockton, once the poster child for so much that was wrong in American life, is becoming the first city in America to test a universal basic income. Everyone is watching — governments, social scientists around the world and the media. Universal basic income isn’t the only thing that has the attention of the watchers. They are also looking at the way innovative partnerships between philanthropy and nonprofits are driving change across California— and they’re wondering what’s next for higher education in the Golden State. It’s a call to action for our sector. Join us for an open, candid discussion with three of California’s rising young change makers as they go deep on what it means to advance equity now.
