- To step into the unknown, and into possibility, without having all the answers
- To hold steady in the face of both the seductions and threats of the status quo
- To stand up when others can’t (or won’t)
We are a financially sustainable social enterprise; the vast majority of our operating expenses are covered through program fees and earned income, by conducting executive programs for universities, foundations, NGOs, and companies.
In the United States, we have 501c3 non-profit status, which allows any philanthropic contributions to be tax-deductible. Philanthropic contributions help us provide more scholarships, launch new programs, reach new territories, and serve a larger audience.
On the impact side, we experienced growth across the board. This includes doubling our reach through events and workshops; doubling the digital editions of the Postgraduate Certificate in Social Innovation Management (SIM); and nearly tripling graduates from our flagship program for organizations – Leadership for Growth. Beyond this, we increased the number of customized programs we ran, training an additional +1,000 changemakers. While growth may be a headline, the story is one of experimentation. We used the disruption of COVID and the challenge of adaptation as an invitation to innovate and pilot new models to scale our impact.
We are always happy to get to know changemakers, social entrepreneurs, social impact organizations and whoever is willing to work to create a better future for the people and the planet. Reach out to us if you are looking to develop a curriculum, to run an event, to spread a culture related to social impact.Contact Us
