9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (EDT)
Centre for Social Innovation - Annex, 720 Bathurst Street

  • Are you a social innovator trying to change the world, but unsure if you're succeeding?
  • Are you a funder or investor seeking to support impactful ideas in getting off the ground, yet unsure what to expect from your funded projects?
  • Are you looking to build a culture of sustained innovation over the slow, stop-and-start process of traditional product or service design?
  • Do you want the thinking tools to help you in all three of these domains?

In this interactive 1-day workshop you'll find answers to these questions and learn:

  • How to see and think about innovation through a systems lens;
  • The principles of developmental evaluation and design as they apply to generating adaptive and sustainable programs, products and services;
  • How to develop feedback systems (data collection) that meets your needs and fits your resources;
  • How to define and envision social innovation for your enterprise;
  • How to ask better questions of your work to lead innovation, rather than stifle it altogether;
  • The fundamentals of strategy as it relates to a social innovation mission and evaluation;
  • The design fundamentals for creating sustainable, creative, and impactful programs.
