Implementing Social Change workshop at Human Rights Campaign headquarters in Washington, DC

The current model for social innovation is highly dependent on contributions of time, resources and skills. Although honorable, this model is not economically sustainable, with less than 5 percent of social change concepts reaching fruition.

Implementing Social Change: Beginner's Workshop guides attendees through the critical processes of actualizing solutions to social challenges with a sense of entrepreneurial spirit by exploring the following topics: 

  • Concept assessment
  • Leveraging relationships
  • Establishing mutually beneficial partnerships
  • Marketing communications
  • Identifying resource needs
  • Creating a simple budget and financial plan
  • Overview of funding models and sources
  • Developing an implementation plan
  • Impact measurement/outcomes

An interactive presentation is followed by small group collaboration where attendees get the opportunity to apply new skills to actual projects through a series of exercises aligned with the topics covered in the morning session.
