Event Description:
Are you someone who wants to use business as a force for good? Are you hoping to shift the status quo toward a more just and sustainable world? Do you want to be better prepared to effectively navigate the increasingly complex, uncertain, unknowable, fast-moving, fast-changing and ambiguous world you will face as you move into the next chapter of your life?
If this describes you, join us for Catalyze Change, the innovative workshop series presented by The Lewis Institute for Social Innovation, to hone your skills in being a change maker and a social innovator. These six sessions will help you use your business skills and know-how to mobilize people and resources to create sustainable and scalable solutions to social and environmental challenges in a way that integrates your impulse to do good with your impulse to do well.
Series topics will include:
  • What is “social innovation?” What makes it matter? Why should it matter to you?
  • What matters to you?: Clarifying your own values to create a compass for moving into and facilitating positive impact in the world
  • Systems thinking: All social and environmental challenges are systemic. Learn about recognizing, understanding and effectively intervening in systems.
  • Relationships, networks and stakeholders: All organizations and projects are fundamentally networks of relationships and conversation. Learn about conversation as strategy.
  • Design: What does it mean to take a design orientation in making a positive difference in the world? A design orientation facilitates making commitment real through products, services and processes.
  • Moving others to action: Enrollment and the power of story.
