If there is one thing that the events of the past year have helped to remind us of, it's the simple fact of how interconnected our world truly is. Issues like public health or the environment are global in nature, and new solutions to global challenges are being innovated all around the world. But when you're a donor here in the United States who may be looking to support causes or organizations in other countries, how do you get started? And how do you make sure that you're maximizing the impact and effectiveness of the support that you're providing? Many of us may sincerely want to "be the change we wish to see in the world," as Mahatma Gandhi famously said; but how do we do that?

Moderator: Michael Gordon Voss, publisher of Stanford Social Innovation Review
