Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
Ashoka is the global association of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs— Ashoka has been pioneering the field of social entrepreneurship for 40 years—finding, selecting, and supporting the world’s leading social entrepreneurs (Ashoka Fellows). Our network of almost 4,000 Ashoka Fellows is successfully implementing system-changing solutions to human and environmental problems in almost every area of need, in 90 countries. By learning from and collaborating with social entrepreneurs, we identify patterns and key levers to help society gain a new framework for living in the world as a changemaker. We believe that everyone should be enabled with the qualities that define a social entrepreneur. Building on our extensive experience with social entrepreneurs, we build and activate networks to create fundamental changes in the growing up experience of children and young people so that everyone can become a changemaker. We are investing in the people and patterns of collaborative entrepreneurship that are necessary in an everyone a changemaker world.
Summary of Opportunity:
Ashoka is seeking an entrepreneur to lead how the world organizes around mindset shifting. The framework change leader will grapple with such questions as: How do big ideas catch on broadly across society? What can we learn from our extraordinary network of Ashoka Fellow about establishing new patterns and norms? How can we accelerate toward the Everyone A Changemaker world, prioritizing key skills such as empathy-based ethics, creativity, teamwork, and leadership? Who must also be having this conversation with us and for us? In order to do so effectively, they must have led a pattern change or mindset shift of their own.
