Big Chat with Prof. Jen Shang

Big chats with some of the greatest minds in the sector.

This year as part of our FIA conference partnership with Fundraising Institute of Australia, we’ve created Big Chat: Conversations with Purpose as a way to get to know FIA speakers and other leaders in the sector through a more informal lens.

Big Chat aims to inspire new and existing members of the for-purpose community and see themselves as the future achievers and leaders of social change.

Professor Jen Shang

Jen Shang is the world’s first PhD in Philanthropy. She is also the world’s only philanthropic psychologist. Her research has been covered in the New York Times, BBC, The Guardian, the Chronicle of Philanthropy, Advancing Philanthropy and the Nonprofit Times.

Jen and Prof. Adrian Sargeant co-founded the Institute for Sustainable Philanthropy. The Institute exists to grow personally meaningful philanthropy around the world. They do that by using science to create more memorable giving experiences that genuinely contribute to the wellbeing of supporters. And by using the latest experimental science to grow the human capacity to love.
