This book offers a snapshot of how the `impact' industry is tackling the complex, multi-dimensional challenges facing our world. The book's chapters apply a systems thinking lens to (1) dimensionalize various approaches to social change, and (2) call for greater cross-sectoral and interdiscplinary collaboration to create sustainable solutions to today's biggest problems.

From government officials and Gates Foundation philanthropists to Google employees, the impact `field' is a sprawling one. It's made up of many actors with many agendas and many aspirations. Some of us work in a headquarters, others out in the field, and others still in a university. We span roles including research, implementation, measurement, strategy, fundraising, and communications. And we are all trying to make an `impact' on different problems - gender equality, healthcare, poverty, racism, unemployment, climate change, and education, to name just a handful.

With such diversity, rarely do we take a step back and try to make sense of the `field' as a whole, beyond our various corners of it. This book takes a ten-thousand-foot view of the space with the hope that we might glimpse some of the paradigms and best practices trickling up across impact efforts, as well as some of the synergies and seams existing between them. From the outset the basic premise of this book is to bring together diverse voices on the topic that focuses our polymathic work into a single point: sustainable change-making.
