A "Disruptive" Conversation with Lucy Bernholz
December 7, 2010

To say technology is driving change would be an understatement. We are experiencing a digital revolution. For this premiere edition of Transparency Talk, Glasspockets’ new blog and podcast series, we sat down with Lucy Bernholz to discuss how technology is transforming the ways in which foundations communicate and share knowledge.

As the founder and president of Blueprint Research and Design, popular blogger for Philanthropy 2173: The Business of Giving, and co-author of the monograph Disrupting Philanthropy: Technology and the Future of the Social Sector, Ms. Bernholz shares her expert insights and provocative ideas about one of the most crucial issues facing the social sector today.

Just a general comment about the blog. Great to see this, and hope it turns into a useful place for exchanging information about transparency, accountability, and how foundations can do the best job making their work and accomplishments known, especially to people who need to know this information inside and outside the sector.

This is Lucy at her best in spotting the megatrends that will shape the future of philanthropy. An excellent resource for orienting new program officers in staffed foundations, and for helping nonprofits navigate an increasingly complex funding lanscape.
