What We Do
Ashoka supports an "Everyone a Changemaker" world through its programs in more than 90 countries, building and amplifying this global movement in three stages:
Ashoka in the United States
Ashoka’s country and regional offices around the world co-create and co-lead Ashoka’s programming. This enables our global changemaker community to capture and act upon emerging insights, knowledge, and talents of innovators from a wide range of cultural and regional contexts.

The New Framework
Ashoka has identified a new framework for living and working together in this radically different world - drawn from insights working with our global network of Ashoka Fellows, the world's leading social entrepreneurs. The four elements of the framework are empathy, teamwork, new leadership, and changemaking.
is the ability to apply it. With a deep understanding of others. we can build relationships and collaborate to solve the problems facing the world.
in fluid, open "team-of-teams"; give small groups the freedom to experiment while driving everyone to share what they learn across the entire organization.
A New Kind of Leadership
that enables teams of powerful self-initiating changemakers, provides a vision, and ensures that goals are met.
is the ability to act and create change in whatever role you play.
Partnerships with Purpose
Ashoka partners with companies that are as committed as we are in creating a just world. We work closely with our partners to create initiatives with both local and global impact.
Ashoka invites everyone to contribute in the most powerful way by joining with us as co-leaders in the "everyone a changemakers" movement. We are social entrepreneurs -- and change leaders -- across sectors who are bringing this powerful framework to our communities, businesses, schools, and neighborhoods.
Your contribution enables us to elect new social entrepreneurs into our fellowship, provide support services to existing Fellows, and launch collaborations between Fellows and companies to promote continued innovation in areas of pressing global need.
