TPW called on Jeff Walker, a former Vice Chairman of JPMorgan Chase and proponent of the “systems thinking” perspective, to contextualize the workshop’s “systems change” theme and apply “systems change” principles to philanthropy.  The session culminated in an afternoon “systems mapping” workshop led by facilitators from IDEO.org, Shalu Umapathy and John Won.
