Ashoka's four areas of focus and investment help people to understand and adapt to a world of accelerating change where everyone is called on to be a leader:
- Social Entrepreneurship: Building Ashoka's collaborative fellowship networks of individuals who have catalyzed an irreversible social change through a new idea, and can demonstrate how to master the key skills for living in an Everyone a Changemaker world.
- Every Child Practicing Empathy: Making it a core value of society so that children can succeed in a world that increasingly relies on collaboration in a fluid, changing environment.
- Youth in Charge: Ensuring that society actively values the skills that teens must master and practice to be changemakers: empathy, teamwork, new leadership, and changemaking.
- Innovation in Teams: Working with institutions to organize for success in the new strategic environment by tearing down walls so that they are working in fluid and open teams-of-teams.
