Our retreat participants are those who have decided there are problems in the world that can’t be ignored. Instead of waiting for someone else to solve these problems, they themselves want to learn the skills needed to solve them. We call them social impact innovators. They might be working for a large non-profit to address homelessness, a government to fix the criminal justice system, an emergency response organization to deal with the aftermath of hurricanes, fighting, independently, for the rights of traditionally marginalized groups, or working on another social issue that affects life outcomes for those in need. Our Design Thinking for Social Impact retreats are designed for those who are actively working to confront complex social challenges but who want to develop new skills and techniques for making the impact they seek in a deeper way. If that sounds like you, you have a specific challenge you’re working to address from homelessness to healthcare, and you’re looking to build a network of other social impact innovators who are committed to making the world a better place, we hope to hear from you.

If you’re unsure if you fit the definition or if you’re new to social impact but are still interested in learning new skills, drop us a line telling us what you do or what you want to do and we’ll let you know how we can help!
