"We need a new learning ecosystem that addresses the evolving demands for new knowledge and training throughout our longer work lives." -Michelle R. Weise, Chief Innovation Officer at Strada Education Network

Cooperative Impact is a for-profit company founded in 2020 to support lifelong learners through practical experiences that cultivate their superpowers, help them navigate uncertainty, and give them tools to shape the “new normal”.

Our mission is to equip more women, minorities, and non-traditional learners with social mobility by nurturing a diverse community that inspires them in their lifelong pursuit to become compassionate innovators, authentic creators, and critical linchpins bridging the old world with the new economy.

Did you know? In June, we ran a four-day social innovation unconference. Learners built a deeper relationship with themselves and others to create valuable projects for the world while using business to sustain and maximize their impact.
