Systems Thinking for Social Innovators

Date & Time

Tuesday, Feb 12th, 2019

2:45 PM – 4:00 PM


Darman Room, Taubman-135, Center for Public Leadership, HKS


The Social Innovation and Change Initiative is delighted to host Prof. Jason Jay, Faculty Affiliate of the Social Innovation and Change Initiative, Senior Lecturer in Sustainability at MIT Sloan School of Management, and Director of the Sustainability Initiative at MIT Sloan, for a workshop on systems thinking.

This workshop will help social innovators to learn the skills of systems thinking – a process that guides individuals in examining and understanding the “root causes” of a problem.  Social innovators will have the opportunity to map a social problem and to identify potential leverage points for social change. All are welcome and those working to understand a specific social problem are encouraged to join.  We highly recommend that students/ teams in the 2019 Map the System competition attend this workshop!
