In my travels I run across a lot of really interesting people working in the field of philanthropy. While reading someone’s work or reading about someone can give you a sense of who they are, meeting them in person gives you a much deeper understanding of who they really are.
So today I’m launching a new, irregular series titled Three Minutes With… As I meet with people in the sector, I’ll try to grab them for three minutes and have them tell us a little bit about themselves. My hope is that this will offer you an opportunity to virtually meet some of the characters, heroes and villains(?) of philanthropy.
First up, we have independent consultant Melinda Tuan, a co-founder of REDF and author of a recent Gates Foundation commissioned report on the state of the Social Return on Investment concept and other impact measurement frameworks.
