A disruptive conversation with Cheryl Rose


Keita Demming works in the space of Applied Innovation but when I met him he was working with our SiG@Waterloo colleagues at WISIR. Much of our time together was spent evaluating the SiG Knowledge Hub. Since then, Keita has gone on to complete a PhD in Workplace Learning and Social Change and to kickstart a popular podcast series called: Disruptive Conversations – among other things. In his podcast he unpacks how people who are working to disrupt a sector or system think.

The following podcast features SiG Director, Cheryl Rose. Cheryl is a Senior Fellow with The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation and has spent many years working to support social change agents through education and training that helps them to have more impact.

In this episode, Cheryl shares a wealth of knowledge in how we can think about changing systems and sectors. Having been a mentor and coach to many disruptors, she reminds us to hold a systems lens or a complexity lens when thinking about generating change. For her, generating change is about accepting the honest complexity of our world. What are the implications of confronting honest complexity? With this question, she reminds us that change takes a long time and takes significant investments of resources. In the conversation, she stresses that resources are not just related to money, but are also connected to the social capital we invest in the problems we seek to solve.

Each week Keita interviews a disruptor: someone working to disrupt a sector or system. You can subscribe to his series in various ways and listen to more of his interviews here.

  3. I am only commenting to make you know what a excellent experience my cousin’s child enjoyed browsing your web site. She figured out a good number of issues, including how it is like to have an incredible teaching mindset to get the rest completely gain knowledge of some extremely tough matters. You actually did more than my desires. Thank you for distributing these warm and friendly, healthy, revealing and also fun tips about your topic to Jane.

  4. Students want their essays to be unique and plagiarism free. This is not an easy task when everybody has the same platform for website. Information from the internet can be repetitive, and hence students might end up submitting essays with similar content.
