May 16, 2011

May 17, 2011, Menlo Park, Calif. – Omidyar Network kicks off its second-annual Omidyar Network Executive Forum (ONEF) today in Menlo Park, California. This year’s theme, “Igniting Change, Scaling Impact,” shapes the three-day private event attended by leaders of 60 organizations supported by Omidyar Network.

The ON Executive Forum is Omidyar Network’s signature event focusing on leadership, and it is a strategic component of its human capital program. Top executives will come together and participate in an event partly shaped by them. Topics of discussion will range from innovation and social movements to the employee value proposition and board development. The format will include keynotes, workshops, peer learning, practice-area networking, 1:1s and small-group coaching. It’s a unique opportunity to focus on common challenges, best practices and practical solutions.  An event agenda may be downloaded here:

Omidyar Network believes that human capital can be as valuable as financial capital in helping organizations to scale their impact. Consequently, ON provides expertise, guidance and introductions to assist in areas such as strategy, leadership, operations, and governance – serving on the boards of many of its portfolio organizations.
