TENTATIVE: Social Innovation 101 Learning Series: Collaborating for Change

This is the era of a new economy, one where service and internet-based organizations are replacing manufacturing, contract work is replacing salaried positions and technology is advancing at an accelerated pace. We’re also more interconnected than ever before. All of these conditions are ripe for social change. When individuals across sectors come together, they can effectively engage community members and other organizations to affect local and global change.

In this workshop, you will: 

  • Learn approaches to building mutually-beneficial partnerships and valuing community context and expertise

  • Reflect on how social identities, power and privilege impact your partnerships and interactions

  • Consider how to approach collaborative leadership and manage community-engaged projects
