Insight Dialogues

A Conversation-for-Action Series Presented by The Rockefeller Foundation

About the Series


From the Green Revolution that fed one billion people to the rise of impact investing, which is bringing in billions of private dollars for public good, The Rockefeller Foundation has seen that some transformations can begin with a single conversation—and an open exchange of ideas.

Hosted by Rockefeller Foundation President Judith Rodin, Insight Dialogues is a live event and digital content series focused on sparking global conversations and action across the most pressing issues of our time. The new series will facilitate an exchange of ideas and inform the Foundation’s ongoing work to improve the lives of poor and vulnerable people around the world.
