About Making Our Way Forward
The world needs entrepreneurs – especially social and civic entrepreneurs – to come together and find ways to heal the many wounds experienced by many nations. Many entrepreneurs who have heeded this call are drawing inspiration from the maker movement as they seek ways to address the disruptions and challenges emerging as societies become increasingly polarized, exposing widening gaps of economic inequity and increased racial and ethnic tension. The maker movement honors passion, creativity, and the ability of human beings to solve problems. Our communities are calling for makers to re-make our world. The spirit of making, in conjunction with entrepreneurial mindset, can transform the communities we live in regardless of locale.
We understand that there are positive correlations between community health, economic vitality, and racial and ethnic healing. Making Our Way Forward navigates the creation of healing zones. Healing zones are communities, organizations, and networks committed to building infrastructure (processes, policies, practices, programs, and pedagogies) that promote and supports racial and ethnic healing, economic inclusion and reconciliation, and educational equity.
The Making Our Way Forward activity is designed to bring people together to engage with the following question:
Jeff Smith, NACCE's Director of Equity & Innovation. and Gabriella Yacovone, NACCE's Maker Fellow, will be leading the group through this activity.
