ARE YOU IN?
It’s time to stop talking about change. It’s time to make it.
We need courageous, collaborative, creative employees who can translate the words of the street to sustainable and meaningful change. And we need to harness the assets of our organizations to tackle the real-world problems that need solving.
We need entrepreneurs on the inside; we need Intrapreneurs.
ONE SMALL, SIMPLE ACTION FROM EACH OF US CAN BRING A WORLDWIDE MOVEMENT TOGETHER TO BE SEEN AND HEARD. LET’S SHINE THE SPOTLIGHT ON OUR INTRAPRENEURS AND ACCELERATE #CHANGEFROMWITHIN.
The time is now. Are you in?

Saving the Rainforest through the Power of Cocoa
Katie Sims former Birdlife/RSPB
As part of her work with RSPB (The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) in the protected area of Gola Rainforest in Sierra Leone, Kate was collaborating closely with forest communities to ensure that the wonders of chocolate become rewards for cocoa farmers who protect their rainforest and its wildlife.
Co-creating with Indigenous Canadians
Ian Howatt of City of Edmonton
Edmonton has the fastest growing urban indigenous population in Canada. It is also the youngest. This demographic is over-represented in many socio-economic challenges: poverty, homelessness, suicide, underemployment. We recognize we as a city have to do more.
Getting kids moving with Nike
Sam McCracken, General Manager, Nike N7
When Sam embarked on his intrapreneurial journey – he wasn’t working in some high-powered executive office. He was working in a warehouse in Wilsonville, Oregon, when he had an idea. He said to himself, “I work for the biggest sports company in the world. I must be able to do something in my role at Nike to help my community.” He didn’t have a grand plan, he heard in a need in his community and believed he could help.
