2014 New York Conference


Inspired by the Humanity in Action International Conference, the New York Conference is a regional gathering for Senior Fellows and friends of Humanity in Action.

The 2014 conference explored the theme of cities and human rights in urban environments. The event featured a full day of thought-provoking speakers, professional skills trainings, a Senior Fellow reunion dinner and many opportunities to meet and reconnect with friends of Humanity in Action.

The conference returned to The New School for the second year in a row. Humanity in Action collaborated this year with design faculty from The New School to develop a number of workshops on advancing the careers of Senior Fellows. Celebrated storytellers The Moth also returned to host a workshop on the art of telling a narrative.
