Dignity 2014 – Celebrating Impact in India

Event Details

London+Acumen, one of the 26 volunteer-led chapters supporting Acumen, is hosting its 4th annual flagship DIGNITY event to highlight the importance of dignity, not dependence, in changing the way the world tackles poverty. What keeps people from realising their full potential is lack of choice and opportunity. It is that choice that allows people to feel dignified.

Watch this recent one-to-one interview with Jacqueline Novogratz, the Founder and CEO of Acumen, on ‘Dignity’.

This year’s DIGNITY event will focus on Acumen’s work in India. During the evening, you will view the personal stories of both customers and entrepreneurs of Acumen’s investees in India and hear about the importance of dignity in Acumen’s work. Join us for an exquisite night out with amazing artistic Indian performances, fantastic networking opportunities as well as drinks and canapés.

When: Monday, November 24 2014 from 18:30 to 22:00

Where: The Crypt on the Green, Clerkenwell Close, London EC1R 0EA
