MIAMI MYSTERY: Gathering Of Leaders
Here's some more information about this year's Gathering Of Leaders, New Profit's annual confab (no, they're not joining the SEIU):
"The fifth annual Gathering of Leaders is bringing together a set of remarkable leaders who are ready to share their experiences and lessons learned with more than 170 Gathering participants. Our objective? To explore the opportunities for the Gathering community in this new era of social innovation."
Lead funder is the Knight Foundation. Key speakers and panelists include the usual -- Fenty, Booker, Rhee, etc. Schnur, Barth (KIPP), Steve Barr, Rob Gordon, Wendy Kopp. (The "fix it from outside" crowd, by and large.) No, you're not invited. (Neither am I.) But don't worry -- there's lots of smart folks there and I'm sure they can get it done without us.
