Connected Educators Webinar: Strategic Social Innovation

There is a big secret out there and few people are willing to say it out loud...

Everyone thinks they are doing social innovation and some want to do social innovation, but few people actually understand social innovation. This webinar offers an introduction to social innovation. Walk away with a Social Innovation starter-kit so that you can begin working with your team immediately after the webinar.
Join us as we explore:
  1. What is social innovation, how it can be used and how you will know if what you are generating is social innovation.
  2. Some of the myths by working through examples of social innovation
  3. Demystify social innovation so that it is both edible and digestible to practitioners who wish to jump the chasm of aspiring for social innovation into embarking on a strategic approach to social innovation
