Social Change Mentoring

It's tough to facilitate social change by yourself. Of course, you might figure it out on your own through trial and error, and that can be a great learning experience; however, it’s also often time consuming and costly.

But with addressing social problems effectively, sometimes there are no second chances if you make a wrong move. 

You can too easily erode trust with key stakeholders. This eroded trust can be difficult (and sometimes impossible) to restore. The secret sauce of facilitating social change is building a culture of belonging and trust. This involves both inner and outer work.

The most important instrument for social change is you.

If you want to strengthen your skills and learn new approaches to inspire and facilitate sustainable social change, this is your chance to tap into the unparalleled experience and guidance of Jessie Sutherland, creator of the award-winning Belonging Matters framework.
