Social Lens was founded in 2016 as a for-profit organisation that brings together professionals working in close collaboration with philanthropy and grant-making institutions to empower social purpose organisations with the knowledge and skills to advance their capacities and improve the outcomes for the communities they serve.
We strive to combine the talent and expertise of ecosystem experts and to collectively design innovative processes to solve some of the most crucial organizational challenges and consequently strengthen the social impact space.
Our purpose is to optimise the handprint of social impact through our offerings in capacity strengthening, impact design, and a lasting legacy of institutional learning.
To improve access to knowledge and awareness for social purpose organisation, Social lens will create more open-access resources of relevant industry topics and by conducting webinars and cohort based training support to strengthen the capabilities of people, processes, and systems to ensure the achievement of institutional competencies. To achieve this, we will also partner with in-house and industry-leading domain experts to integrate solutions with the prevailing best practices
Social Lens will measure progress by tracking the increase of 30% in open-access resources for social purpose organisations per year.
Recognizing it will take alignment of all our organizations to scale impact globally, we invite you to join the movement as a Steward of Inclusive Capitalism. Together, the collective action of Council members will contribute to a fairer, more inclusive and sustainable future for all people and our planet.
