Join us in November for an extraordinary opportunity to meet with Abigail Scott Paul from the UK’s Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) for a conversation on how to mobilise mainstream communities and institutions to eliminate poverty.
From its establishment in 1904, the JRF has always been (and still is) famous for its pioneering approach to understanding the root causes of social problems and addressing poverty.
The Foundation has continually evolved and reinvented itself, contemporising its approach to meet modern contexts and challenges, but never straying from its focus and purpose. Today, its objective it to solve UK poverty - but as well as an audacious goal, how they are going about this is certainly not your mainstream philanthropic practice!
Abigail is driving JRF’s strategy to reframe the public conversation, narratives and attitudes towards some of the most marginalised people and communities in the UK. Having commissioned and led JRF’s award-winning ‘Talking about Poverty’ programme, she is an expert in the application and embedding of framing insight (aka communications science) within an organisation’s corporate communications strategy, as well as across a wider sector/movement for change, including grassroots activism.
Joining Abigail will be our home-grown panel of experts to discuss how philanthropy can and should help solve poverty.
