Leaders and members of a Social Acquisition "institute" would span numerous stakeholder groups and could benefit in a variety of ways including (but not limited to) through:
peer learning, professional development, and communities of practice
networking, partnerships, and relationship-brokering
research and knowledge development and dissemination
resourcing support for social acquisitions
The INCUBATION of the Social Acquisition initiative grew from the 2021 Legacy Leadership Lab Continuity Report, which recommended five key actions that leaders could engage in to support and grow social acquisition development in Canada.
To learn more about the Legacy Leadership Lab and its findings, download the Final Report here.
The incubation process depends on the contribution of expertise, funding, and community engagement from those who wish to see the movement flourish.
WISIR is currently in Phase 3 of an INCUBATION process. We are recruiting an executive board from February to April 2022.
