SIX is not a traditional membership network, but rather a community of likeminded individuals who connect because they have something in common. They are pioneers breaking new ground that others don’t necessarily understand, but can sometimes feel isolated, both inside their organisations and their relative countries.
There are lots of ways for organisations to formally engage with SIX, either through collaborative projects or by being part of the Global Council. Given that networks are often defined by their numbers and the profile of people within them, we wanted to find a new way to tell the story of our Network. We wanted to find a way for individuals to be more involved in SIX’s work and to celebrate the stories of these innovators.
We want to recognise the people who have played an important role in the development of SIX and the global social innovation field over the last 10 years. We often work with many of these people informally, and we now want to formally recognise and celebrate our relationship with them.
The SIX 100 are our inspiration, our partners and a part of the SIX team. They are leaders in their fields and a vital part of the SIX community. Above all, they are our friends.
Although the SIX 100 started with 100 brilliant minds, it is an ever-expanding pool of contributors.
We look forward to pursuing our work and deepening our relationships with you and together, continue to spread social innovation across sectors and boundaries.
