The Philanthropy Workshop

A high-impact group of global philanthropists from The Philanthropy Workshop gathered for a series on using the arts to promote social justice; the weekend included music and dancing as well as talks by bestselling novelist Dave Eggers on his publishing company Voice of Witness as well as MY JOB author Suzanne Skees on the evolution of storytelling at Skees Foundation from third-person reporting on nonprofit partners’ programs to first-person narrative from their actual clients, to the creation of MY JOB: Real People at Work Around the World.

Suzanne Skees, author of the three-volume MY JOB series on real people in remarkable jobs, believes in the power of our jobs over our identity and wellbeing and, conversely, our ability to change our world with the work of our minds and hands. She lives by the Pacific Ocean and spends as much time as possible listening to the surf, and to silence.
