Helping crisis response and system change work together better

The Foundation for Inclusion was "under construction" when the pandemic hit. We were quietly undertaking a strategic review, intending to announce a new name, a new structure, and a new way to share our expertise. That review continues—and so does our work!

The pandemic and global lockdowns have shown the world how important it is to have functioning systems that serve everyone. Before the current crisis, many of the world's food, work, health, education, social services, and other systems were already failing millions of people. Now, the fractures in those systems are getting wider by the day and harming millions more in the process.

We all need to mobilize immediate aid for those who need help right now—and also make sure the systems that emerge from this crisis are capable of serving all people and all communities.

We believe the world is capable of doing both at the same time. It's clear we can no longer afford to keep deciding between solving immediate problems and fixing the systems that keep producing them. We need to do both. We can do it together.

Let’s talk! Send a quick note to Arpitha if you want to know more or explore collaborations.

What will it take to solve
the world's greatest challenges?

You.

It will take you — with other changemakers and movement builders — working together as a system.

The Foundation for Inclusion can show you how.

Change Is Possible

Human trafficking, chronic poverty, poor economic mobility, dangerous conflicts, a growing climate crisis — with millions of dollars, thousands of people, and hundreds of organizations taking on challenges like these every day, we should be seeing a lot more progress than we are.

How do we make permanent progress on humanity's greatest challenges?

By shifting the focus from solving problems to fixing systems. Systems have feedback loops that make problems like these self-perpetuating.

The Foundation for Inclusion is helping changemakers, innovators, and movement builders transform systems to create new feedback loops that make real solutions self-sustaining.
