Leadership at the personal level

In order to affect change at an organizational or systems level, you need to understand who you are as an impact leader. What does it mean to be a leader committed to transformational change? Hear Umi Howard, Director of the Lipman Family Prize, share what makes an impact leader excel and how you can define your own approach.

11:00 AM

Social intrapreneurship workshop

Across sectors and industries, social intrapreneurs lead from the inside, championing new strategies or reimagining old ones. In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn about and practice Problem Reframing - one of the intrapreneurs’ essential techniques for breakthrough thinking and company impact.

Issue-based discussions over lunch

What issue do you care about most? Over lunch, join a roundtable discussion with others passionate about driving change in your field.

Systems change simulation

Rather than focusing on isolated solutions, today’s impact leaders need to understand complex systems and know how to collaborate with partners across private, public, and social sectors. Guided by WholeWorks, you and your team will be immersed into a complex, multi-stakeholder simulation and asked to build a solution that maximizes benefit for both business and society.
