Alexandria Lafci, New Story
Innovation doesn’t spring to mind when most people think about the social impact sector. But given that it’s the industry solving the world’s most pressing problems, shouldn’t it be? Tackling complex social challenges requires taking risks and yet, for many social impact organizations, limited or restricted income disincentives rather than encourages experimentation. This conversation will center around how to build a culture of risk-taking in social impact work, cultivating donors or investors with an appetite for experimentation , and understanding the importance of research, development, and technology in combating social issues at scale.
