Higher education as an engine for social innovation

The Exchange is Ashoka U’s global gathering for social impact educators. Now more than ever, the Exchange is more than just a conference. It’s a home for creative problem solvers, learners, listeners, and visionaries.  The values that guide our community are:

  • Authenticity. Our actions and motivations remain true to our personal and collective values.
  • Belonging. We are a home for changemakers and a support network of visionary thinkers.
  • Optimism. Where others see problems, we see the spark of a new idea.
  • Inclusion. We seek out diverse voices and take active strides to ensure they feel empowered in our community and their perspectives are respected.
  • Generosity. We are here for each other, eager to listen and share.
  • Courage. We’re not afraid of unorthodox ideas because they’re inherent to progress.
  • Respect. We recognize the right of every attendee to feel safe, heard, and valued at the Exchange. We are all part of this community together and all voices matter.

The next Exchange will take place in Spring 2021.
