#OWNPHL Debrief Wrap-up: What Happened and What’s Next AheadBy Shannon Collins |
Over a dozen people gathered around the table to discuss recent social good happenings and ask questions as part of our first ever #OWNPHL Debrief meetup. We had a diverse group representing solutions in the region — from technology and women’s issues to community-engagement and nonprofit management. Some of the most exciting moments came when people began sharing new projects happening and making connections with each other after the event.
