April 5-7, 2018 | Ashoka U Exchange 2018: The Mindful Changemaker: Cultivating Awareness and Wellbeing for Self, Other & Society


The 2018 Ashoka U Exchange, co-hosted by Babson College, will take place on April 5-7, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Exchange is one of the largest international gatherings for college and university professionals to learn and share leading practices for embedding social innovation in higher education. Throughout the gathering, participants come together to share how they equip aspiring changemakers – through their classrooms, co-curricular programs, departments, institutions, communities and beyond – to catalyze long-term, meaningful change and social impact.

Join Gretchen Ki Steidle at the Ashoka U Exchange for a workshop on The Mindful Changemaker: Cultivating Awareness and Wellbeing for Self, Other & Society

Mindfulness is a core aspect of being an effective, resilient changemaker and key tool for driving social impact. In this session, participants will engage in interactive exercises to explore the connection between mindfulness and changemaking within the domains of the self, others, organization, and society. They will leave with tools and actions to embed mindfulness into their own lives, work, and institution.
