About this event

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 and will be repeating its popular series of workshops exploring systems thinking and social change:

  1. Workshop 1) Systems thinking core concepts (online)
  2. Workshop 2) Systems mapping and analysis (online)
  3. Workshop 3) Working towards systemic change (in-person)

These are introductory sessions designed to be accessible to anyone. Hosted by NPC’s, Associate Director of Strategy & Leadership, Katie Boswell, they will be interactive sessions focused on how we can apply systems thinking tools to address our most complex problems more effectively.

Workshop 3:

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 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
