Past Globalizers

 

 

The Globalizer is working to help change the system. Founded in 2010, it is an Ashoka initiative that supports social entrepreneurs to spread their impact more broadly and efficiently by helping them strengthen and deepen their vision for systemic and frame change. The social entrepreneurs participating in the program are encouraged to reflect on the strategies and the leadership skills they need to generate widespread impact in a world characterized by constant change.
