Here is the session description: "This session will build on a 2019 Ashoka conversation around expanding our collective understanding of social impact. We will share about our transformation from a volunteer and service-learning center to the Center for Social Impact, including our strategic framework, getting campus buy-in and approval, and our plans moving forward."
The Exchange is Ashoka U’s global gathering for social impact educators. The values that guide the Ashoka community are:
Authenticity. Our actions and motivations remain true to our personal and collective values.
Belonging. We are a home for changemakers and a support network of visionary thinkers.
Optimism. Where others see problems, we see the spark of a new idea.
Inclusion. We seek out diverse voices and take active strides to ensure they feel empowered in our community and their perspectives are respected.
Generosity. We are here for each other, eager to listen and share.
Courage. We’re not afraid of unorthodox ideas because they’re inherent to progress.
Respect. We recognize the right of every attendee to feel safe, heard, and valued at the
Exchange. We are all part of this community together and all voices matter.
