Event – Social Innovation Labs for Systems Change: A WISIR Process
How can social innovation labs impact our most complex challenges?
On June 1 from 4pm to 6:30pm join the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation‘s Senior Fellow Cheryl Rose at CityStudio in Vancouver to learn about the critical elements and processes involved in social innovation labs, and engage in discussion with other participants and practitioners from local Vancouver-area labs. Cheryl will also be joined by Robin McClay, the new Executive Director of Social Innovation from BC’s Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation.

Labs are increasingly being used as a method to convene diverse people and stakeholder organizations to address complex systemic social problems. Social innovation labs offer an opportunity to push the limits of existing processes to develop something tailored specifically to focus on complex problems, to experiment, build shared strategies and enable deliberate transformation in a system.

Waterloo Institute for Social Innovation’s (WISIR) recently released Social Innovation Lab Guide.
