Description

“A Celebration of Pro Bono Economics Volunteering”

The event will be kindly hosted by Chicago Booth School of Business London Campus (Woolgate Exchange, 25 Basinghall St, EC2V 5HA) on Thursday 8th November 2018 at 6pm.

About the evening

Please join us as we host our annual event to celebrate the hard work of our volunteers and the charities to which they have given their time. This year, we will hear presentations from Paul Singh (Equal Education) and Sinem Cakir (MAC-UK), who will discuss their PBE projects and the practical applications of the report findings. Following the presentations a panel, chaired by our trustee Jenny Scott and featuring Vicky Pryce and Anthony Harte, will discuss their experiences in further detail and link to broader debate around impact and routes to scale in the social sector.

The evening will conclude with a drinks reception.
