If I read all the things that my next guest has done, the organization she has started the causes that she has been involved with and the recognition that she has received, you would think we were about to have a panel discussion, but we’re not. She is Loreen Arbus, the first woman to head programming on a television network for Showtime and then again later at the Cable Health Network, Lifetime. And among other things is the President of the Loreen Arbus Foundation.
We frequently talk to practitioners from the international development community on The Business of Giving about their work around an issue or in a particular country. But it is useful to take a step back now and again to look at this $200 billion industry from a broader perspective so we can put this work into a larger context. And there is no one better suited to do that for us than my next guest. He is Raj Kumar, the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Devex.
