About this event

The term ‘systems change’ is being used more and more across the social sector. There is growing recognition that social problems are complex and that systems change is needed to improve people’s lives. Subsequently a growing number of charities and funders are aiming to change systems through their strategies, services and grant-making programmes.

But people engaging with systems change at the frontline face a range of barriers to success. The language of systems change can be alienating and the work is messy and emotionally draining. Funders can be reluctant to fund systems change work, senior leaders can be risk-averse, and power structures and cultural norms are resistant to change.

So what does it take to influence systems change at the frontline?

This seminar will:

  • Explore the barriers faced by people trying to influence systems change;
  • Showcase real examples of systems change at the frontline;
  • Discuss what kind of strategies and leadership are needed to embed systems change approaches.

Speakers will be announced closer to the event.

This event is part of our 2020 Leading Impact series of seminars.

  • from £55
  • 29 April 2020, 9:45 am – 12:15 pm
  • Resource for London, 356 Holloway Road, London, N7 6PA
