A Conversation on Mastering System Change for Social Impact
The UTS Investing in Impact Initiative (III) invites you to a public seminar with visiting guests Professor Johanna Mair and Dr Christian Seelos.
Current research on systems change has highlighted its potential to increase the effectiveness of social innovations to create better services, solve complex social problems more effectively and efficiently, and help foundations and funders make positive social gains sustainable at scale.
But systems are complex and small mistakes add up and are difficult to observe. Visiting guests Professor Johanna Mair and Dr Christian Seelos will explore how organisations can navigate the complexity of system change to create social impact.
PROFESSOR JOHANNA MAIR is a Professor for Organization, Strategy and Leadership at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin, and is the Co-Director of the Global Innovation for Impact Lab at Stanford University’s Centre for Philanthropy and Civil Society. Her research focuses on how novel organisational and institutional arrangements generate economic and social development.
DR CHRISTIAN SEELOS is the Co-Director of the Global Innovation for Impact Lab at Stanford University’s Centre for Philanthropy and Civil Society. Christian researches the interface between organizational strategy and global sustainability including social innovation, new business models for poverty alleviation, climate change and water stress.
