Markets For Good Heavy Lift

Outlining an ambitious revolution in how information could, should, and hopefully will play a key role in future social change-making, long-time Humantific collaborator, Markets For Good, has published a new report entitled: “UpGrading The Information Infrastructure For Social Change”.

Forget the fluffy, high-profile, change-the-world stuff – someone has to do the hard work of building awareness of the need for more social change infrastructure, and our friends at Markets For Good have taken on that important heavy-lift task. Humantific is delighted to be helping!

Markets For Good is an effort to improve the system for generating, sharing, and acting upon data and information in the social sector. Our vision is of a social sector powered by information, where capital flows efficiently to the organizations that are having the greatest impact, programs and interventions are more effective and responsive, beneficiaries have a voice, and there is a dynamic culture of continuous learning, development, and innovation.”

“Our hope is that this paper, together with the new website www.marketsforgood.com, can help to expand and amplify a conversation to explore issues, discuss challenges, and discover the best approaches for getting and using better, more reliable, and more consistentdata in the social sector. While this paper is an outgrowth of numerous discussions among more than 20 social sector intermediaries that have been part of the Markets For Good collaboration, we realize that we are still very much at the beginning of this journey. As such, we intend this paper to be a ‘living document.'”

“We recognize that this vision is ambitious, and realizing it will require many technical, behavioral, and cultural changes….We look forward to your thoughts, and hope you join us as we imagine, and help build, a better tomorrow.”

liquidnetday2-08961

Humantific has been working with LiquidNet for Good and Global Giving to codesign a three day Markets for Giving strategic cocreation workshop that was codelivered June 23-25 at Liquidnet corporate headquarters in New York.

Multinational workshop participants included thought leaders from numerous philanthropic organizations. In addition, Humantific provided the strategy cocreation methologies, the visual sensemaking and the hands-on process facilitation for this important event.

Working accross mutiple disciplines and organizations the participants were able to come together to cocreate a unified future philanthropic eco system visual model. Navigating through significant complexity the group was able to create unified challenge maps that became go-forward roadmaps for this important on-going initiative.

Helping diverse groups tackle complex social innovation challenges including infrastructure creation is exciting and meaningful work for the Humantific team. These are projects that we love to pitch in on and help out.
