Voices for Economic Opportunity Incubator
Shifting attitudes on poverty and economic mobility in the US
The Voices for Economic Opportunity Incubator is a new model to support innovation for narrative change and social impact. Purpose built this incubator as part of the 2019 Voices for Economic Opportunity Grand Challenge with key partners, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, James Irvine Foundation, Omidyar Network, Raikes Foundation, Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation, and the Schultz Family Foundation. The challenge set out to support the development of breakthrough creative, scalable, and strategic interventions by diverse participant organizations to begin to shift harmful narratives on poverty and economic mobility in the US.
We foster community and collaboration through convenings, peer-to-peer learning, and networking opportunities for our 28 participant organizations across the US.
We supply training and learning on cutting-edge narrative change research and interactive workshops on audience development, storytelling, and human-centered design.
We provide testing and experimentation tools, resources, and coaching to develop and test ideas and measure results with real audiences in real time.
