CHALLENGING THE 'SYSTEMS QUO'
Philanthropy has a rich and storied history, yet in a rapidly disrupted society it can seem somewhat slow and reactionary to the critical social issues of our time. There are plenty of folks out there talking about current trends which are informative, interesting and thought provoking, yet their actions seem to be confined within the boundaries of their current strategic plans.
Ryan's work poses questions on how we move from talking about the future in incremental time frames and provides examples and solutions on how to anticipate future trends and lay the groundwork for their successful adoption.
RELEASE DATE - FALL 2021
Ryan's new book is a guide on embracing new technologies & approaches and how they can be accelerated today to catalyze the solutions of tomorrow.
