The Alterna Social Ventures Institute presents:
Impact Gaps Canvas Events!

  • Is there a social or environmental problem you are working on, or interested in working on?
  • Do you want to think of ways to increase your impact?

Join this event presented by Daniela Papi-Thornton, an educator and consultant in systems-led leadership who has worked at the Saïd Business School at University of Oxford and the Yale School of Management. If you have an issue you care about then this workshop series is for you! You can choose to join one or both of these workshops, as they will build upon each other but can also stand alone.

  • Session 1: The first workshop will focus on considering the system in which you work, connecting with other social change leaders, and learning about the Impact Gaps Canvas as a means to consider how you might increase the impact and reach of your work. The 90-minute session will include time for you (and your team, if you join together) to try out some of the tools as well as opportunities to connect with other members of the Carleton community.
  • Session 2: The second workshop will focus on a basic systems mapping tool (the 5Rs model) and help you consider power and relationships in your chosen system.

Workshop Dates

  • Session 1: Tuesday, July 6, 2021 at 7:00 pm EDT
  • Session 2: Thursday, July 22, 2021 at 7:00 pm EDT
