The Next Chapter of Impact

Location: Williford B (3rd Floor)

Deep Dive Workshop
Big Ideas

How must we change the social sector to tackle tomorrow’s challenges? Much has been said about the shortcomings of philanthropy and social innovation, but what steps can we take to improve how we work for social change? This session will move beyond the hand wringing and criticism, toward building and action. Hosted by IDEO’s open innovation practice — OpenIDEO — this hands-on, collaborative, solutions-oriented workshop will harness the room’s creativity and expertise to prototype cross-sector solutions. The workshop will begin with a panel of sector leaders from GHR Foundation, Obama Foundation, the Chicago Community Trust and Chicago Beyond. Then we’ll break into small group ideation sessions that will borrow from design and systems thinking tools to identify ways to actively improve the social sector through your work, together.
