An article co-authored by 1995 Echoing Green Fellow Katya Smyth reflects on the piece “When Good Is Not Good Enough” (Stanford Social Innovation Review, Fall 2013), [1991 Echoing Green Fellow] Bill Shore, Darell Hammond, and Amy Celep.
The article argues that there may not be one resolution in solving wicked problems and nonprofits can’t and shouldn’t, have to do it all. Bill Shore, Darell Hammond, and Amy Celep have identified what the social sector needs: policy advocacy, cross-sector collaboration, and moving from one-shot programs or interventions to more systemic, multi-tiered strategies. While all these are essential, they are not sufficient for transformational change.
