NYU Heyman Center
A Report Card?
This luncheon panel discussion looked at the
effectiveness of the Obama Administration's new
public-private initiatives to boost the strength of
the nonprofit and social advocacy sectors and use
new media to 'wire' government for increased citizen
participation and social innovation.
Panelists debated: How well are these "open
government" initiatives working? Are foundations,
nonprofits, and social enterprises benefiting
significantly from new citizen-led projects?
What new opportunities exist for advocates of "eGovernment" and for
nonprofits to tap public funds?
