People all over the world are trying to work together in more collaborative ways in order to change things for the better â€“ within their organizations, within their communities, and beyond. IISC builds the capacity of people to collaborate for greater social impact by modeling, practicing, and teaching the skills and tools of collaboration. In all of our work, we view collaboration through these three lenses:
- Building power, pursuing equity, ensuring inclusion
- The power of networks to leverage social change
- Love as a force for social transformation
IISC works with organizations, communities, networks, and others to build their capacity for more effective, equitable and inclusive social change. And we offer workshops that provide participants with the opportunity to learn and practice the skills and tools of collaboration for social change so that they can do everything from designing meetings to building and running organizations and networks with greater social impact.
