Listen to the New Season of The Impact Podcast: Ecosystem Building, Systems Thinking, and Social Impact
This season of The Impact Podcast by Innov8social takes a ‘meta’ view of the social impact space. Through a systems-level perspective, it examines the role of the social impact ecosystem builder, which is part-content creator and strategist, part-convener, and part-consultant-coach.
The season includes conversations with impact media strategists and Bohem Media Fellows at Opportunity Collaboration, leaders in the systems-led thinking space, social impact professionals who have successfully built personal ecosystems for social impact, and the importance of deeply understanding a problem when to try to understand gaps and opportunities within an existing system, to be able design more effective and impactful solutions.
We are working on an upcoming season that takes a closer look at what it takes to be a social impact consultant and coach, through open and candid conversations with ecosystem builders in the space. If you are someone (or know someone) who has a valuable perspective to contribute, feel free to fill out the form here.
