The next decade of systems change

Working with partners deliver greater impact

There is growing recognition that effective systems change work requires developing strategies alongside partners in the communities it seeks to serve, rather than instrumentalising them.

But how are systems change funders co-creating change and sharing power? Are there new ways of working and best practices which have evolved over the previous decade? What can we learn from existing efforts from leading donor collaborations and new research?

This event, which draws on insights from a decade of systems change work at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, is for participants who want a frank discussion about the potential and limits of philanthropy for social change. 

It takes place from 17:00-18:00 (UCT+4)
