YPIN Socratic Seminar
When Kiva launched in 2005, Microfinance was thrown into the mainstream. But like any boom cycle, it suffered a bust, and in 2011 and 2012, microfinance "crisis" rippled across the globe. Why did it grow so fast, why did it crash, and where will it go from here? Come to YPIN's Socratic Seminar on June 17th to explore these questions and learn more about this captivating industry.
To help lead this discussion, Cole Hoover, Board Member at Lumana, will co-moderate the discussion.
Socratic Seminars aren't for telling you the answers; rather they provide a discussion space to explore the questions. It is a moderated discussion around top issues of the day in true dialectic method. Articles highlighting viewpoints on both sides of an argument are provided as suggested reading, although participants are encouraged to participate even if armed only with their opinions. The Socratic Seminar series does not place parameters on where the discussion may go; rather it provides a starting point and background information to fuel discussion.
Socratic Seminars are sponsored by the Row House Café.
Attendance is limited 25 participants per Seminar.
