Systems Change and Social Impact

Application Deadline: 15 February 2021
Course starts: 01 March 2021

In the context of an unprecedented global pandemic, Systems Change has become increasingly topical. Rather than assume to fix a problem in isolation, Systems Change is the collection of frameworks, tools, and theories that are applied to transform the system that creates it.

As the pandemic surfaces brutal societal inequalities, governments, economic sectors, health systems, and communities are struggling to balance the pursuit of meeting urgent needs while ushering in sustained change into the future. Systems Change and Social Impact is a specialised online short course, convened by the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the UCT GSB, designed to give public officials, leaders of social enterprises, founders and funders exposure to the most recent developments in how to bring about sustained positive change.

This interactive course equips participants with the tools and frameworks to navigate complexity and strengthen their capacity for transformative leadership and collaboration. It promotes local and global networking amongst change-makers and provides a unique community of practice that will serve participants far beyond the duration of the course.
