Imagine being able to go back to school for a week in one of the world's executive education universities, none other than Harvard University.

This was the case for 29 Schwab Foundation social innovators who signed up for and participated in this year's Harvard Executive Education Module on Leadership for System Change.

The programme is run by the Social Innovation + Change Initiative at Harvard Kennedy School, which was created by Founder and Faculty Chair, and Schwab Foundation Awardee, Julia Battilana.

Harvard Kennedy School, officially the John F. Kennedy School of Government, is the school of public policy and government of Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The module took place from 20-27 August and covered a range of topics, including innovation and scaling, digital transformation, storytelling for impact, financing social change, power dynamics, and more.

Social innovators were joined by renowned professors and lecturers, Matthew Lee, Tim O'Brien, Marshall Ganz, Bharat Anand, Alnoor Ebrahim, and Schwab Foundation board member, Johanna Mair.

Thank you to our valued partners, the Motsepe Foundation and David Rubenstein, for this wonderful opportunity.
