White privilege, Impact and the problem with Liberalism

February 21, 2017

On this episode of Social Impact Now, we'll be talking to Topher Wilkins, CEO of Opportunity Collaboration. Opportunity Collaboration is predicated on the powerful idea from diversity can come unity, and from cross-fertilization can come innovation. The power of collaboration draws its power from the conviction that people of good will forge their own solutions, directions and alliances, and uncover new ways to combine and leverage resources. On today's show we'll discuss privilege from white guy’s perspective, how liberalism undermines its cause, the election results and the power and strength of relationship-building to drive innovation and positive impact. This episode was recorded days after the 2016 election. Edited for time.
