The Power of Social Innovation Series #5
August 12 from 1 pm to 2 pm (EDT)
~This free event is a Webinar and takes place online. Registration required.~
Every sector of society has a role to play in social change, but none might be as important as citizens themselves. How can we best organize ourselves to drive innovation and reform?
This Webinar, sponsored by the Government Innovators
Network and the Malcolm Wiener Center for Social Policy, will feature two experienced organizers who are deftly growing their impact through two seemingly dissimilar platforms: labor organization and digital media. We will hear their lessons learned regarding the potential of member-based associations, how initially to bring people together, the tension between advocacy and collaboration with government, and the future of organizing in a digital age.
With participation from the audience, our panel will derive a set of common sense principles and strategies to help public officials, social entrepreneurs and citizens produce extraordinary social change.
Ample time will be allocated for audience Q&A.
The panel includes:
- Archon Fung (Moderator), Ford Foundation Professor of Democracy and Citizenship at the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation and Co-Director Transparency Policy Project, Harvard Kennedy School.
- Sara Horowitz, Founder and Executive Director, Freelancers Union
- Maya Enista, CEO, Mobilize.org
