Reimagining Identity and Power in the Impact Economy
In a recent Impact Entrepreneur Magazine article, Toni Johnson asserts that “Democracies and their supporting institutions are bleeding faith in themselves. But they can be revitalized. We can finish out the first half of this century by working to renew faith in each other.”
What does it mean to seek a common story and define the common good to build a sustainable and equitable future when the partisan media and social media abound with divisiveness, and antagonism and mistrust sit between relatives at the Thanksgiving table?
How do we collectively stand against injustices and build an impact economy that works for every woman and man and for the more-than-human world when individuals and institutions with wealth and power focus immense resources at keeping us separate and weak? These are not easy questions, and the answers are often even more challenging.
In this Deep Dive conversation with members, Impact Entrepreneur welcomes journalist Toni Johnson to discuss how we can reimagine how we show up and share power more equitably as we work together to construct an impact economy.
