We’re excited to switch it up this week by inviting our Director of Digital + Innovation, Shannon Ritchie, on to the show to tell us a bit about her work here at Fletcher Foundation. Shannon joins us to chat about what has led her to AJF, how she hopes to make a difference, and what is next for herself and for our nonprofit partners.

People throw around “I read this thing in the Stanford Social Innovation Review…” constantly. Heck, it’s even starting to sound like a bad word to say we work in “nonprofit” industry as compared to “social innovation.”
