This groundbreaking and timely book provides change makers, organizations and facilitators with practical tools to initiate and conduct multi-stakeholder co-creation processes. Such processes are of critical importance in times of rapid change, where mega trends and grand challenges influence the market dynamics of business in entirely new ways. The book provides a concrete pathway for business to become future-ready by building capacity to work outside its traditional boundaries. The book unfolds the shift of multi-stakeholder teams from a state of competition to a state of collaboration, addressing the inner and outer dimensions of such a change. The five superpowers identified in the book are: (1) the genuine engagement of individuals, (2) collective solutions of groups, (3) transformative spaces created by facilitators, (4) the building blocks of co-creation, and (5) an effective strategy process for organizations. The book explores the challenges to achieve each of these superpowers. It also shares the stories of "heroes of transformation" and explores what have been the reasons for their success. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the grand challenges, the future of work...call it what you want, the future is here and organizations, change makers and facilitators need nothing less than these superpowers to collaborate with other players to solve these wicked problems.

The role of the journalist has been significantly altered and is far beyond that of being just a “reporter” of news in modern times. Social entrepreneurship is rooted in a venture that seeks to create revenue while being anchored in providing social value to the communities the enterprise serves. Combining these creates the concept of a social newspreneur, which takes elements of the old business model and creates new opportunities. In this way, media can be reformed by everyday people who have a vision for restoring trust and facilitating alternative activities to inspire civic engagement in new and unique ways. As such, journalism program administrators have realized that the time has come to alter and provide innovative educational opportunities that prepare students for careers outside of traditional employment. Entrepreneurship education across the disciplines is quickly becoming the status quo on today's college campuses. However, in making these curricular changes, faculty must engage in significant assessment of these new approaches to ensure that students are obtaining a return on their investment in the college education and degree that they seek. Cultivating Entrepreneurial Changemakers Through Digital Media Education is a crucial reference book that cultivates timely and relevant practices in the development of improved teaching methods, assessments, information delivery, and technological tools that are used to facilitate and support the social entrepreneurship and digital journalism education space. It explores the role of media innovation and how the landscape is ripe for the influx of social entrepreneurs, or the rise of the "social newspreneur." The chapters cover areas such as methods used in journalism programs, social entrepreneurship in course design, educational technologies, student learning outcomes, and how these programs foster civic engagement. This book is a valuable reference tool for university faculty, university administrators, news organization leaders, journalists, reporters, broadcasting agencies, professors, practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, academicians, and students.

From an engineer and entrepreneur, a conversation-changing parenting book about how to engage young women in science, technology, engineering, and math, filled with practical advice for both parents and educators. As the female CEO of a tech startup, Dr. Cristal Glangchai was outnumbered twenty to one. At Google, Twitter, and Facebook, women currently fill just ten to twenty percent of technical jobs. While career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math have increased dramatically in the past twenty years, the achievement gap between men and women has only grown wider. In VentureGirls, Glangchai offers a unique solution based on her own experience as an engineer and entrepreneur as well as the founder of the VentureLab, an academy of entrepreneurship and technology for girls. Practical, accessible, and filled with success stories, VentureGirls argues that a key part of raising strong, confident young women is giving them the tools of entrepreneurship to engage in STEM. Entrepreneurship isn’t just about starting companies, Glangchai writes, it is a skillset and a way of thinking that is particularly useful in the fields of science, mathematics, engineering, and technology. Entrepreneurship involves identifying needs, brainstorming creative solutions, innovating, and taking calculated risks. In short, it’s about having a vision and making it a reality. The true value in learning and practicing entrepreneurship, Glangchai argues, lies in nurturing and growing an overall mindset—the ability to learn from failure and to work well with others to bring your ideas to life. Deeply informative, warm, and grounded in real-world experience, VentureGirls includes a plethora of activities and lessons that focus on strengthening kids’ ingenuity and resilience. VentureGirls is essential reading for anyone who wants to raise girls and young women who realize their strength, engage in the world, and feel empowered to make a positive impact.
