The sixth Global Pro Bono Summit will take place in Mumbai, on February 6 – 9, 2018 at the Auditorium Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vaastu Sangrahalya (formerly, Prince of Wales Museum), Fort, Mumbai. This is an annual invitation-only gathering of leaders from across sectors and around the world who believe the talents and skills of the entire business community should be accessible to organizations serving our collective good. Their mission is to connect, mobilize and equip leaders in the pro bono movement from across the world. The Global Pro Bono Network exists to promote knowledge sharing, mutual support, and collaboration among pro bono provider. The pro bono network of professionals voluntarily provide a public service without payment or at a reduced fee.
The Summit will bring together pro bono movement leaders from 30+ countries and will challenge them to identify ways to increase their impact and hold each other accountable when delivering and facilitating pro bono work that drives social change.
Participants will include Global Pro Bono Network Members (leading pro bono "intermediaries"), corporate leaders in pro bono programming, foundations supporting pro bono efforts, and other pro bono enthusiasts. Participants seek to collaborate with their peers and partners, learn how pro bono can elevate and amplify other tools being used to create social change, and create strategies to provide more high-quality and high-impact pro bono service.
The Global Pro Bono Summit has two facets, one focused on development and strengthening of the Global Pro Bono Network and the other to bring together pro bono leaders to share and collaborate to grow the pro bono movement globally.
At a time when the network moves from a project run and funded by the BMW Foundation and Taproot Foundation into a members-driven, self-governing and eventually self-funded network, it is crucial to have a closer look at the network itself. During our two days together as network members-only we want to deepen our relationships, build trust and have fun, but also devote time to the network's purpose, value proposition, strategy and priorities, as well as to its governance, roles, responsibilities and processes all allowing for a maximum of participation and future engagement of members.
Held since 2013, supported by BMW Foundation and Taproot Foundation, the Summit has been convened in a different global city each year to demonstrate the different facets of Pro Bono and to give an impetus to the its growth in each region. iVolunteer is proud to host the 6th Global Pro Bono Summit in Mumbai.
