In Episode 30 of the Disruptors for Good podcast, I speak withAmy Smith, Chief Giving Officer atTOMS, on innovation in impact and giving and the future of TOMS philanthropy.

Amy Smith joined TOMS in 2016 as Chief Giving Officer to oversee all aspects of TOMS Giving. This entails managing 70+ global giving partners, measuring giving program impact, experiential engagement with internal and external partners, and leading employee Giving Trips to the regions where TOMS gives.

TOMS provides shoes, sight, and water as part of their Giving Partners overall health and education programs to help drive meaningful impact and engage the community. Amy also manages the impact grants program, in which TOMS contributes to non-profits that are working on todays most pressing issues, including homelessness and ending gun violence.

Amy was previously the Chief Strategy Officer and President of Action Networks forPoints of Light, the worlds largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. Prior to joining Points of Light, Amy held several management positions atApplehelping to lead their retail initiative including international real estate development, store design, construction execution and store operations. Amy earned a bachelors degree in Materials and Logistics Management from Michigan State University.

This episode was recorded at TOMS headquarters in Los Angeles, CA. I was fortunate enough to attend theConscious Capitalism LA(CCLA) fireside chat with Amy Smith, Chief Giving Officer at TOMS. The night was hosted by Conscious Capitalism LA andB Local Los Angeles, the affiliation of Los Angeles B Corporations.

This episode will have a couple of parts. The first part you will hear the full discussion between between CCLA Board Member, Steve Phillips, and Amy Smith, Chief Giving Officer of TOMS as they discuss:

The second part of this episode I sit down with Amy one on one after the event for a brief interview.
