A collection of reflections from the SICI community.
Whether at the level of the self, organization, community, or planet, these colleagues have integrated sustainability into their COVID-19 action and planning.
Since the reality of COVID hit our campus, we have been awestruck by the examples of innovation emerging from within our network of students, alumni, faculty colleagues, practitioners, and local government here in Massachusetts.
When we do our social impact work, and especially when we dedicate our lives to it, it can be difficult to remember that enthusiasm alone does not pass for fluency.
In our SICI community, these resources have come up time and again as helpful for unpacking complex problems.
As you close out the year and begin to reflect on the challenges that call to you in 2020, our hope is that you have the courage to commit fully and experience the freedom and community that brings.
Small wins carry us forward, but they are also a reminder of the important role even the smallest change can play in shifting the norms around us.
Documenting both the implicit and explicit aspects of SICI’s pedagogy is providing an opportunity to take stock of what has worked and what hasn’t, and identify which of our activities and processes are core to maximizing impact.
It is through our collective efforts that these projects will take flight, teach others, and transform the world around us.
As we start a new year, we are reflecting on what 2018 taught the SICI community about being an effective social innovator.
