Fellow Ashoka
Fellow dal 2002

Becoming an Ashoka fellow enabled me to spread our original work at Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network (PLAN) to more than 40 locations around the world. PLAN supports families prepare for the social and financial well-being of people with disabilities after their parents die. Ashoka support also enabled PLAN to lead the campaign to create the world's only disability savings plan, the RDSP. There are more than $2 billion in deposit. My current focus is social innovation that spreads and endures, which is the topic of my latest book, Impact: Six Patterns to Spread Your Social Innovation. Lasting change requires us to engage with the cultural dimensions of change (habits, attitudes, beliefs). I am particularly  interested in what unites us. For example, the omnipresence of natural caring for each other and our environment is a universal that transcends ideology and background. When I grow up I'd like to be a peacemaker.



    Questa descrizione di Al Etmanski e del suo lavoro è stata preparata quando Al Etmanski è stato eletto Ashoka Fellow nel 2002.
    In order to enhance the quality of life and the security of disabled persons, Al Etmanski, who is based in Vancouver, B.C., is weaving a safety net that can withstand both the death of their care-giving parents and the unpredictable changes in government-funded support services. Its strength derives from secured networks of family and friends, increased financial independence, and avenues for true contribution and citizenship.
