Interview with Shivani Garg Patel | Women(+) We’ve Been Waiting For | S1: Ep. 18

Shivani Garg Patel is the Chief Strategy Officer at the Skoll Foundation. Prior to that, she co-founded and led Samahope, a non-profit that invested in local medical providers who provide critical medical care to women and children in low-income communities around the world. Shivani has been a social entrepreneur, investor, advisor—and her technology-driven social innovation work has spanned the Grameen Foundation, the World Bank, and the World Health Organization.

TODAY she discusses three critical components of philanthropy—the what, the how, and the who—as well as what is really meant by systems change.

Who should we interview next? We’d love to hear your thoughts.

Why Women(+)? We were inspired by one of the pioneers of this movement Jacki Zehner, and we adapted the term from ShePlace: “women(+) includes all self-identifying women, including cis and transgender women, non-binary and gender-fluid individuals, and all allies who share our values.”
