Redefining Philanthropy: Virtue Foundation, Horasis and the UN
The aims and methods of philanthropy have changed considerably over the years, and tech has played a huge role in that transformation. At the October 2020 Horasis Extraordinary Meeting, Virtue Foundation co-founder Dr. Joan LaRovere told how VF’s AI-driven Data Mapping Initiative can serve as an example to other nonprofits as they seek to match resources and need. Horasis, convened with the UN, is the world’s foremost gathering of business leaders who interact with key government officials and eminent thought leaders.
Dr. LaRovere was part of a panel of distinguished experts discussing the topic, “Redefining Philanthropy: Using Data, Machine Learning and AI to Inform Action and Drive Sustainable Impact.” Her comments focused on how VF’s Data Mapping Initiative aims to yield high-impact interventions while accelerating sustainable development.
