Shifting Mental Models to Advance Systems Change

Monday, June 17, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Organization Name: 

Mental Models—otherwise known as deeply held beliefs, assumptions, and taken-for-granted ways of operating that influence how we think, what we do, and how we talk. When it comes to doing the work of systems change, many organizations find that shifting mental models within their stakeholders is one of the most challenging yet critical components to activate real and lasting change. But what does it mean to “shift” mental models? Where would one start, and how does one overcome the many challenges that aim to keep historical mental models in place? Following up on the earlier webinar The Six Conditions of Systems Change, join a discussion on June 17 with FSG and New Profit as we take a deeper dive into one of those specific conditions- how to promote and encourage mindset shifts within your stakeholders and communities. We’ll be hearing stories from the field from the national civic organization PushBlack and community-focused efforts from the Hogg Foundation as well as a primer on mental models from the Frameworks Institute. If you’ve been wondering about how to tackle one of the most difficult components of systems change, this is a learning discussion not to miss.
