How Change Happens: Why Some Social Movements Succeed and Some Don’t
How Change Happens author Leslie Crutchfield reveals in this session the leadership approaches, campaign strategies, and ground-level tactics used in a range of modern change campaigns. Based on several years of research with a team of 21 staff, students and faculty at Georgetown University’s Global Social Enterprise Initiative (GSEI), she unearthed six key factors that explain why winning movements triumph. She will explore in this session how you can apply these best practice toward advancing emerging movements like Me Too, Never Again, Black Lives Matter and other important causes.
