Introduction to Social Impact Orientation and Measurement
Social Impact Orientation and Measurement
This workshop’s objectives were to enable the leaners:
- to identify key strategic objectives and challenges for their projects,
- to develop their “theory of change” on how to make a difference in society,
- to give and receive peer-feedback and
- to communicate and scale up their projects‘ social impact.
The workshop brought together learners from each country. It was designed to allow for feedback and learning between “peers”. The workshop duration was 2,5 hours and included a short presentation, an interactive group session and two breaks (10 min each).

Square Pegs Round Holes- Creating Intercultural boards
The British think-tank Brap created for the learning exchange in Copenhagen an intercultural audit tool which allows mapping thebehaviours of board members, and help boards to understand how they need to change if they are going to create a culture where a diversity of board members can both exist and flourish.
There is a lot of time spent preparing members from diverse groups to become skilled in fitting into the culture of existing boards – but often when they get this role, they are unable to do anything different because the decision making culture of the board doesn’t change . In order for individuals to be judged as credible, they have to fit into existing cultural norms and values. Around the world, Brap sees people on boards, who may look different, but act and make decisions in the same way as boards have always done.
Brap’s approach draws on the latest thinking about “uncouncious bias” and intercultural competences. The audit tool is for any innovator, especially those determined to take action on the diversity challenge.
Via floor exercises the learners tested the four key areas of Brap’sintercultural board model: individual awareness, board values andbehaviours, decision making, and the ability to realise the benefits of diversity. The board audit tool is a work in progress.

The training needed to serve on diverse boards
Preparing individuals for public appointments and help them identify transferable skills and areas of expertise.
This workshop focused on showing in practice what does it take to prepare individual candidates for serving, on diverse boards. DiPaworks on a daily bases with non-profits dealing with the diversity challenge and in the process of forming a diverse board for their enterprises. But more importantly, Shaama Malik and her team at DiPa have developed a whole support system for individuals to join in through the process of creating a diverse board.
DiPa’s workshop was especially useful for potential board members of all shapes and sizes – both for-profit and non-profit – at all stages, but by no means limited to that audience. Whether you were a learner about diversity in leadership, a board member or if you just wanted to understand the work undertaken by public bodies, you could participate in the workshop at a level that suits your interests and talents.

Walk through Nørrebro
Over the last couple of decades Nørrebro has evolved from being a working-class area into Copenhagen’s hottest neighbourhood. Trendy bars and fashionable designer shops are side by side with cheap kebab places. Nørrebro is also the place of the Assistens Cemetery, which holds the graves of Hans Christian Andersen and Søren Kirkegaard. The residents of Nørrebro love their neighborhood so much, that they create an audio walk: I AM NØRREBRO. Uzma Ahmed Andresen, social activist and candidate for Alternative, and Lærke Kamma Clausen, student assistant – 3F, walked with the learners in a very cold November afternoon exploring Nørrebro’s diverse and hip multicultural atmosphere.

Media, branding and communication
What needs to happen so that diversity is more valued in public discourses?
This workshop designed and facilitated by Catherine Wurth aimed at developing 5 good practice projects/actions on what needs to happen so that cultural diversity is more valued in public discourse.
First a silent brainstorm session in six small groups. Next, each learner shortly presented two ideas on diversity to her/his small group. Cultural diversity was concretely related to the learner’s daily work and projects.
Ideas were then presented to all the learners, and further refined into best practice projects/action. Prototypes of these projects were then pitch. Templates, pictures and outputs of each pitch can be seen here.
