Practical guidance on thoughtful, effective philanthropy can be hard to come by, but in this interview, Will Ortel sits down with an investor, Ron Bruder, who has made the transition in the hopes that others can learn from his journey. Ron Bruder established Education for Employment at the beginning of the century to target the problem of Arab youth unemployment. Since that time, his foundation has spread throughout the Middle East and North Africa and won acclaim from the World Economic Forum, The Guardian, and former US President Bill Clinton. In this interview, Bruder discusses how he chose to dedicate himself to philanthropy, the tools he has found useful, and how philanthropy can influence the future.
