GEI’s Social Impact Lab works to advance sustainable development and social innovation. Anchored by GEI’s regional centers in Africa and Asia and a network of affiliated partners around the world, we carry out research and provide evidence-based training, practice, and advocacy in key intervention areas.
Research: We are committed to increasing knowledge that has a real impact. As such, we engage in research initiatives on a wide range of sustainable development and social innovation priorities.
Education & Training: We offer educational opportunities for students, faculty, researchers, and professionals interested in advancing selected sustainable development and social innovation priorities. Opportunities include continuing education and professional development programs, university-level short courses, professional workshops and trainings, conferences, practica, and internships.
Practice: We create social entrepreneurship solutions to support our global impact interventions – from mental health clinics to social entrepreneurship incubators.
Advocacy: We raise awareness and advocate for selected sustainable development and social innovation priorities.
