Impact is a very popular word today. Change-makers, grassroots activists, politicians, funders and policy makers all seek impact. By impact they mean the ability to change laws and funding priorities as well as to shift attitudes, values and popular beliefs. In other words change that lasts and makes a big difference.
Vickie Cammack and Al Etmanski have spent the last dozen years studying the field of social innovation to learn more about impact. They have discovered that people with disabilities and their families have a distinct talent for achieving impact. They have “impact-ability” because they are continuously inventing and creating their way out of adversity.
Al’s bestselling book, Impact: Six Patterns to Spread Your Social Innovation chronicles more than fifty stories of impact. Impact that transforms, that lasts and that disrupts the status quo.
To celebrate the “impact-ability” of people in the disability movement, Plan Institute is pleased to sponsor a seven part webinar series based on the patterns in Al’s book. Our hosts for the series are Al and Vickie. They will be joined by seven experienced and inspirational change-makers.
