We started InWithForward in 2013 to test new and informed hunches about how to prompt change with people on-the-ground, and inside of big systems.
Over the past 10 years, we’ve designed products and services that have changed the behaviors of families, young people, older people, and folks with disabilities. From a telephone social networking platform between isolated older people, to a new developmental youth service, to a face-to-face network of families helping families to thrive.
We're now focusing on how to also shift systems: how money flows, procurement procedures, risk management policies, professional standards. All the stuff that tends to prevent bottom-up changes from sticking.
