How can you build a capacity for innovation within your social purpose organization? Organizations that excel at social innovation tend to have in common one apparently simple practice: They pay a great deal of attention to the inner experiences of the people who work in them.
Please join SSIR on February 5 as Warren Nilsson and Tana Paddock discuss the theory and practice of "inscaping"—their term for the work of drawing on personal experience to generate the raw material of social change. Nilsson and Paddock will present examples and insights from specific organizations that use inscaping to foster innovation "from the inside out."
Joining them for the webinar will be Marlon Parker, founder of RLabs, a social enterprise based in Cape Town that promotes community-driven innovation in 21 countries.
The webinar will build on Nilsson and Paddock's article "Social Innovation From the Inside Out," in SSIR's Winter 2014 issue. There will be time for Q&A during the last 20 to 30 minutes of the webinar, which will be moderated by SSIR Senior Editor, Michael Slind.
This webinar is for people at nonprofit organizations, foundations, and other social purpose groups who want to create internal processes that will help to build a deep, long-lasting capacity for innovative thought and action.
