Remaking the Economy: Finding the Levers for System Change

Nonprofit Quarterly
Description / Summary

How does social change happen?

In the story of the blind men and the elephant, we learn that different people touching different parts of the elephant “see” different things. One touches a leg and surmises it must be a tree. Another touches the trunk and imagines that it must be a snake. Of course, the elephant is a complex living creature.

Social change, likewise, looks different depending on your vantage point. So, to explore economics system change from multiple vantage points, this webinar invited panelists who hail from community-based economic development, electoral organizing, and group facilitation to be in conversation with each other. The result is a fascinating discussion uncovering both unexpected intersections and areas of alignment.
