"Collaborative Healing and Positive Deviance: Uncommon Solutions to Common Problems"
Featuring Libba Pinchot, Co-Founder of the Bainbridge Graduate Institute
When: November 13, 2014 - 7:00 a.m.. - 9:00 a.m.
Where: Women's University Club
The move to run the world in a more feminine way requires both collaborative healing and audacious innovation. Libba Pinchot, educator, author, and consultant on entrepreneuring and intrapreneuring, has recently been inspired by two borrowed concepts—healing moral injury and positive deviance—that could help us make a difference in the world. As women we stand for balanced power and positive welfare for children and all living things. Yet, we can feel powerless in the face of the enormous challenges and are often asked to leave behind our principles in order to succeed. This creates moral injury. Recognizing and healing these injuries allows for renewed energy and audacious innovation.
Sharing stories from her work with women innovators, Libba will demonstrate how these concepts can reshape our confidence and create an ability to get things done in new and unusual ways, affecting everything from climate change to feeding our children. We can become positive deviants, finding creative ways to fill societal needs and sharing our discoveries, perhaps breaking rules for the good of all.
