Rebecca Allen of Melville Charitable Trust connects with Melissa Peterman of the San Diego Housing Commission
We were delighted to share the day's dynamic and unique events with so many bold thinkers. We're proud of the Institute's thought-provoking special speakers Nan Roman, Laura Zeilinger Cecilia Muoz, Kollin Min, T. Sanders, Leslie Strnisha, Michael McConnell, Martha Toll, and David Wertheimer

We're thankful to our sponsors, Funders Together San Diego, Wilson Foundation, and True Colors Fund.  And our day wouldn't have been a success without our creative and gifted HomeTeam and TableTalk Facilitators. Last but not least, we're grateful to our participants for challenging one another to create bold solutions.
