Intrapreneur’s Pathfinding Conversations #1
Join us in celebrating the launch of The League’s latest publication, The Intrapreneur’s Guide to Pathfinding!
About this Event
“The path to our destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it doesn’t matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matters is that we embark.” – Barbara Hall
Imagine a world where our economy works for every human. Where business is a solver of problems not just a maker of things. Where institutions are responsible for regenerating ecosystems. This is the shared vision of social intrapreneurs around the world. The ‘dreamers who do’ working in back-offices and boardrooms harnessing organizational assets for impact.
Intrapreneurs are developing new products, services, and systems solutions from within our incumbent institutions to address wicked challenges facing society (climate change, biodiversity loss, inequality, violent conflict to name a few). And, yet, there is no blueprint for this imagined future. No road map that clearly marks the way.
To succeed, intrapreneurs must master the ancient art of pathfinding – navigating their way through uncertainty and bringing (often reluctant) teams along with them. The Intrapreneur’s Guide to Pathfinding was curated by The League of Intrapreneurs, a global learning community of “social entrepreneurs on the inside.”
Join us in celebrating the launch of The League’s latest publication, The Intrapreneur’s Guide to Pathfinding, and participate in an interactive discussion about living and reconnecting with your purpose at work.

The League of Intrapreneurs is a global learning community of intrapreneurs and catalysts driving systems change from within our most influential institutions.
We launched the League in 2012 to help unlock the latent human potential that exists in all organizations for applying creativity and sideways thinking to address our most pressing societal challenges – be that climate change, poverty, inequality, education or health care.
Our members work in business as well as in government and non-profit institutions. We connect and support intrapreneurs around the world to feel less alone, deepen their leadership capacity and to create more impact through their work.
