Social Change 201
As animal welfare evolves, a new philosophy about our work is emerging. This new philosophy is more open and accepting towards people, and many of us are exploring new ways of working. We’re reaching out to groups we have never engaged with before or with whom our past engagements have been less than productive. It’s really happening! Animal welfare is starting to look like a social change movement!
Social change movements are designed to solve social problems, not put band-aids on them. The social change makers who design and implement these solutions think and work in unique ways and they get unique (and exponentially better) results.

In the second webinar in the two-part series, we’ll go a little deeper for those who are seeking a more personal pathway to becoming social change makers, or want to add social change work to their organization’s strategies. We’ll dig into questions like:
How can we identify the true root causes of social problems?
What are the practices and beliefs of the most successful social change makers?
How can your organization create a culture that encourages social change thinking?
This two-part webinar series is designed for animal welfare professionals who want a deeper understanding of what social change is and how we can apply the philosophy and practices of social change to solve some of the complex challenges we face in animal welfare.
