"ONG del conocimiento: Influir para el impacto social "
The ESADE-PwC Social Leadership Programme is a joint initiative of the ESADE Institute for Social Innovation and the PwC Foundation. Over the course of ten editions, the aim of this programme has been to create useful knowledge for addressing the future challenges of the third sector. We trust that the last study of the 2017-2018 academic year, Knowledge NGOs: Influencing for Social Impact, will help many entities develop an interest, learn, experiment and advance in order to become knowledge organisations, and tap into the benefits that this entails in terms of invigorating their influence capacity and advancing their mission. We believe that social entities should not limit themselves to learning; they should go a step further – gathering and transferring knowledge both internally and externally – in order to enhance their social impact by strengthening their capacity for influence.
