Dr. Ruth Shapiro: Is Asia Philanthropic?

VIEW EVENT DETAILS
Ruth Shapiro

As enormous wealth continues to be created in Asia, the region’s ultra-high-net-worth individuals are turning their hand to philanthropy. But their path continues to manifest quite differently from the United States and Western Europe. Drawing upon exclusive interviews with ultra-high-net-worth individuals and case studies of successful social initiatives, this talk will examine why and how Asia’s traditional and newer philanthropists are giving.

Dr. Ruth Shapiro is the founder and chief executive of the Centre for Asian Philanthropy and Society, a nonprofit incorporated in Hong Kong in 2014. In addition to Pragmatic Philanthropy, Dr. Shapiro edited The Real Problem Solvers, a book about social entrepreneurship in America. She is a regular speaker on issues related to Asian philanthropy, social innovation and social entrepreneurship in Asia. Dr. Shapiro holds a doctorate from Stanford University and Masters degrees from Harvard University and George Washington University.
