Leadership for System Change: Delivering Social Impact at Scale


Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship, Harvard Executive Education Module 


From April 5-16, 2021 the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship will convene an executive education module online with Harvard Kennedy School. The course features a practitioner-oriented curriculum designed specifically for the needs of our global network of social change makers working across the public, social, and private. Guided by top faculty, participants will deepen their understanding of systems change, identify ways to scale their impact, and develop leadership skills for systems change. 

The program is directed by co-chairs Julie Battilana and Alnoor Ebrahim. Professor Battilana is the Joseph C. Wilson Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School and the Alan L. Gleitsman Professor of Social Innovation at Harvard Kennedy School. Professor Ebrahim is Professor of Management at the Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy and the Tisch College of Civic Life at Tufts University.
