What are we collectively learning about how to tackle our most pressing systemic challenges? Join us for a learning conversation.
HOST: Adam Jay
The world today can look kind of terrifying. Pandemics, wildfires, droughts, floods, failing democracies… you name it. Against the backdrop of accelerating rates of change is a faint hope that we as humans are shifting our own mindsets and practices in a way that might enable us to catch back up. In this community is a wide variety of incredible humans learning and acting in this emerging space — let’s connect on what we are learning!
In this 90-minute session, we hope to have a generative and participative conversation.
Adam will share a couple of his favourite models of systems theory and practice:
Together we will explore:
- Systems shift slowly… What do we observe in how change happens, and what opportunities are there to move more quickly?
- What are some of the common challenges we see as practitioners?
- What are some of the most important enablers of effective change?
- What is our role within systems change, and where do we need to tread gently or cautiously?
- Where do we see this work evolving next?
The conversation will have some structure but will be shaped by its participants. Come prepared with your insights, examples, questions, and curiosity.
Adam Jay is a systems thinking guy at PwC Australia’s The Impact Assembly. He is a long-time MG Taylor practitioner with both the ASE and The Difference. He has spent the last couple of years looking at how to apply some of this thinking to social change, addressing issues including homelessness, obesity, education, and agriculture. Mostly he’s just excited to talk to you all about interesting and important things.
