Webinar: Systems Thinking for Social Entrepreneurs, Philanthropists, and Policy Makers – Dec 6

Posted by Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR) on November 21, 2023

Social problems are complex, but Systems Thinking can help identify causal relationships among the many factors that generate problems and help design enduring solutions. On December 6, join SSIR Live! for a 90-minute webinar, Systems Thinking for Social Entrepreneurs, Philanthropists, and Policy Makers, where we will introduce ways to think about systems and learn how to map and analyze them.

This webinar is designed and presented by Paul Brest, former dean and professor emeritus (active) at Stanford Law School, a lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, codirector of the Effective Philanthropy Learning Initiative at the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, and codirector of the Stanford Law and Policy Lab. He is co-author of Money Well Spent: A Strategic Guide to Smart Philanthropy (2nd ed. 2018), and has written many articles on nonprofit strategy, philanthropy, and impact investing. He was president of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation from 2000 to 2012 and is also the cocreator of the free online interactive courses “Developing a Strategy for Social Change” and “Thinking in Systems.”

Date and Time: Wednesday, December 6, 2023, 2:00-3:30 PM
