ABOUT THE INNER WORK FOR SOCIAL CHANGE PROJECT:
Synergos and the Fetzer Institute began the Inner Work for Social Change project in 2018 with the aim of shedding light on the power of personal transformation in social impact. This four-part learning series plays an important role in the project’s goal to show how Inner Work makes social action more effective and sustainable.

By highlighting stories of social change from across the world, the Inner Work for Social Change Project encourages changemakers to use Inner Work as a tool for boosting social impact. The project is rooted in six in-depth case studies, which explore Inner Work and show its power to transform people, collaborations, and social impact initiatives. The project also offers resources for individuals, groups, and organizations interested in applying Inner Work practices to their organizations and work.
