Can you Change Global Poverty?

Are you moved to act on extreme global poverty? Have you heard about the positive difference microfinance (a.k.a., “microcredit”) makes in the lives of the economically impoverished? Do you want to learn more and know how you can act in ways that are effective, responsible and lasting?

If so, this conference is for you! The 2009 Pacific Northwest Microfinance Conference, May 8-9, 2009 at Seattle Pacific Univserity is a collaborative event that seeks to deepen knowledge, connect people, and mobilize action toward developing lasting solutions to global poverty. The current global economic crisis threatens to have a devastating impact on economically impoverished people around the globe. While caring about others when we are fearful about our own situations seems counter-intuitive, true tests of our compassion come during troubling times.

Its a stacked lineup of featured speakers, including Rick Beckett, CEO, Global Partnerships, Peter Bladin, Executive Vice President, Grameen Foundation and Executive Director Grameen Technology Center, Tamara Cook, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Matt Flannery, CEO and Co-founder, Kiva, Skip Li, Founder, Agros International, and Atul Tandon, Senior Vice President, World Vision.
