Employee changemaking

Embed changemaking and social innovation in the work you do at Georgian

The Centre for Changemaking and Social Innovation (CCSI) works across the Georgian community to engage employees in making positive change happen. We have many tools and resources that can support diverse teams in enabling a community of changemakers at Georgian.

Are you a faculty member? Visit the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) to learn more about changemaking and social innovation in teaching.

Join the community of practice

The Changemaking and Social Innovation Community of Practice is focused on exploring ways to embed and scale changemaking and social innovation in our classes and across our institution.

It is focused on how we can support our students as they acquire skills, attitudes and mindsets suited to the 21st century. These include empathy, resilience, teamwork and collaboration, systems thinking, new forms of leadership and a global mindset.

Join the community of practice on Microsoft Teams and jump into the action today!
