The World Is Changing.

In a world defined by rapid change, interconnectedness and uncertainty, where our social problems are deep and urgent, changemaking must become the new literacy.

A changemaker is anyone – nurse, teacher, child, neighbor – that steps up and solves a problem for the good of all.

What Is Your Kids?

Through a 90-minute workshop led by Ashoka, founders of the field of social entrepreneurship, employees will convene with like-minded colleagues to create their own unique ideas for practicing changemaking skills with those they love most: their kids. Together they will come up with ways of integrating the four changemaking skills of cognitive empathy, collaborative teamwork, new leadership, and change making, into their homes and workplaces.

Your Kids is a unique opportunity to bring work and home life together by enabling staff members to practice new leadership in a new world.

The Case For Changemaking.

We no longer live in an age of repetition. 65% of the jobs our children will hold don’t even exist yet. In a world defined by rapid change, interconnectedness and uncertainty, where our problems are deep and urgent, changemaking is the new literacy. Change is something institutions must harness in order to stay competitive. It is equally important for the next generation of leaders to master the skills of being a changemaker to thrive in a fast changing world.

The Impact Of Your Kids
