Fabiola | Changemakers Forward's insight:

Bill Dryton, founder, chairman and CEO of Ashoka: Innovators for the Public, gives a great account of how social entrepreneurs emerged as the a new citizen sector making the leap to the entrepreneurial architecture of the private sector. 

 

"We are transitioning from a world in which a small elite runs everything to a world in which everyone needs to be a player." 

"To be effective in this new world, you will need to master the skills of empathy and teamwork, as well as leadership and driving change. You will need to know how to function in a world that is not a hierarchy but a kaleidoscopic global team of teams, with no boundaries between sectors and change that happens at an escalating pace."

Fabiola | Changemakers Forward's insight:

Amazing story! 

"Trust became the medium of exchange, not HTML, not money. Helping each other became the purpose, not profits or returns on investments. Establishing a community who believed in me and what I was doing became the goal, without worry over profit margins, because eventually I received the most important gift of all: a true faith in people to be honest, fair, generous, and supportive."

Fabiola | Changemakers Forward's insight:
This speaks so well as to why Changemakers Forward exists today. Totally resonate!'The real changemakers are not necessarily people that have risen to the top or are rising through the ranks of their respective industries. The real changemakers are people who take this and use it as a platform to have a voice, to get involved in something, to create something. When you put yourself out there with nothing to lose, that's when real change can happen, and that's often when people discover their real purpose.The Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu said 'the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step'.
