University of Oxford Saïd School of Business Map the System Semi-Finals
May 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Map the System is a global competition of the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship, delivered in partnership with educational institutions around the world. From its inception in 2015, Map the System was designed to change the conversation in social impact education — moving from an overemphasis on the ‘heropreneur’ and new ‘solutions’ (typically in the form of a new proposed program or social venture) — toward a focus on deep understanding of complex problems as the foundation for driving transformational change.
The competition challenges participants to use systems thinking as a guiding approach to understanding some of the most complex issues the world faces today. Participants will delve deep into a social or environmental issue that matters to them and will take the time to explore, probe and research all its connecting elements and factors — later sharing their findings in a way that people can meaningfully understand, share, and learn from.
The Leading People and Organizations Area offered a class called Leading for Impact that provided the opportunity for Gabelli School students to participate in the Map the System competition.
Five Gabelli School of Business students will be competing in the semifinals at 11:20 a.m. on Wednesday, May 10:
Prutha Chavan, Brendan Depenbrock, Amelia Semler, Danielle Zhong and Mallory Lipski
All are welcome to tune in and cheer on this team.Register
