Description

"Over the last decade it has become clear that the only way to solve the world's most pressing problems is to understand and then change the systems that are the source of the problems. Good intentions are not good enough. Perspectives on Impact brings together insightful essays from people across all sectors of society who have been at the forefront of devising better ways to create social impact." - Eric Nee, Editor-in-Chief, Stanford Social Innovation Review--Climate change. Global poverty. Social Injustice. How on earth do we mitigate, let alone solve, daunting challenges like these facing our world? This book brings together over 20 leading voices from across sectors to reflect on this question. The short answer: we need moon-shoot goals, a systems thinking lens, and unprecedented collaboration across all players in society. Learn how senior leaders from Acumen, Oxfam, Google, Sesame Workshop, IDEO.org, Sidewalks Labs, TEDx, Women's March Global, Harvard Kennedy School, and more are shaping an evolved approach to making impact in the twenty-first century. And learn what you - and your organization - can do to join forces and lead the way.
