Philanthropic Leadership of Tomorrow

CKGSB is pleased to be hosting Barry Salzberg, Chairman of United Way Worldwide and CEO of Deloitte, at 9:30-11:00AM on April 23 at CKGSB’s Beijing Campus. Mr. Salzberg will be joined by prominent CKGSB alumni who are leading China’s nonprofit sector for a discussion on what’s next for philanthropic leadership. These alumni include Wang Zhenyao, Dean of Philanthropy School of Beijing Normal University; Li Yapeng, Founder of Yan Ran Smile Angel Foundation; Chen Weihong, CCTV anchor and philanthropist; and Wang Rupeng, General Secretary of China Red Cross Foundation. Together, these influencers will engage in a discussion, moderated by CKGSB Associate Dean Teng Bingsheng, on innovations and best practices in the public interest field.

As Chairman of United Way Worldwide, the world’s largest privately funded nonprofit, Mr. Salzberg is leading UWW’s global efforts to further enhance education, income and health. As global CEO of Deloitte—where Salzberg leads the strategic direction of 48 member firms in 150 countries with more than 195,000 people worldwide—he has made significant contributions to society. While Deloitte has supported UWW for 25 years, it was under Salzberg’s leadership at Deloitte that the member firm ran consecutive record-breaking UWW campaigns, with the most Tocqueville donors (above $10,000) of any company in the U.S. Salzberg also established the United Way Education Collaboratives, which have raised nearly $4 million for education. Mr. Salzberg will discuss his personal and professional commitment to UWW’s efforts, the future of the nonprofit sector, and how he views corporate social responsibility at Deloitte.
