Ashoka Fellow Mark Hanis discusses his organization’s recent high-profile merger.


Last week I sat down with Ashoka Fellow Mark Hanis, whose organization the Genocide Intervention Network had just announced its merger with the Save Darfur Coalition.  Combined, the organizations form the largest anti-genocide group in the world, with a membership base of 800,000 activists, a robust nationwide student movement, a network of investors with over $700 billion in assets, and a louder, stronger voice than ever before.  Watch the interview to hear Mark’s thoughts on how mergers in the corporate and social sectors differ, what ingredients made his merger work, what you should know if you’re considering a merger, and more.
