About this event

Earlier this year we ran our popular series of systems change workshops. The third session, working towards systemic change, was in-person so we are running an online session for anyone that was unable to make it or would like to join remotely.

Whether sparked by the experience of the pandemic, the urgency of climate change, the intersectionality of racial injustice, or the intractability of multiple disadvantage, many in the social sector are becoming increasingly aware that addressing the highly complex and interconnected nature of our problems requires new ways of thinking and working. Systems thinking has emerged as a field to help understand and navigate this complexity. NPC has been supporting the sector to embed systems thinking in their work.

Systems change is a process not a destination. Any person or organisation, irrespective of their focus, culture, experience or approach, can develop their capacity to work in a more systemic way – to become more systems-informed.

This introductory session is designed to be accessible to anyone. Hosted by NPC’s, Systems Change Principal, Seth Reynolds, it will be an interactive session focused on how we can apply systems thinking tools to address our most complex problems more effectively. This session is designed to help you and your organisation incorporate systems approaches into your day to day behaviours and actions , including

  • Understanding systemic change
  • Developing your capacity for systemic change
  • Incorporating a systems approach within your organisation

We are actively working to improve the accessibility of our online and in-person events. As part of our commitment, for all online events we use live closed captions and upload the recordings to YouTube which has the capability to select subtitles. For in-person events we strive to use accessible venues. If you have any additional accessibility requirements that we can assist with, please email us at Events@thinkNPC.org.
