The Art of Change: How to Be Intentional About Changing Human Behavior at Individual, Organizational, and Community Levels

The Art of Change: How to be intentional about changing human behavior at individual, organizational, and community levels

Thursday, September 16th, 4:30pm-6pm PT / 7:30pm-9pm ET

Change is naturally occurring in all aspects of our lives. Yet, most of us feel uncomfortable changing and resist change in different ways. The art of driving change starts with understanding more about change itself. With a little intentionality -- strategy around design and contextual awareness -- we can become a "change champion," or a fully-expressed, values-driven, influential, and respected leader who acts with intention to create enduring and lasting change towards a greater vision of equity and justice. Come start your journey with tips and tools shared in this introductory workshop!

Bio

A lawyer by schooling and nonprofit executive by trade, Aila Malik has been a change-agent in her community and the nonprofit sector, at large, for over two decades. In 2015, Aila founded a unique management-consulting firm, Venture Leadership Consulting, partnering with not-for-profit organizations to drive performance and scale solutions that close systemic gaps of inequity. 

Aila has dedicated over 20 years to supporting and educating youth in many contexts including: homeless shelters, mentally disabled homes, juvenile justice system, foster care and mainstream public schools. In that time, Aila has served as a non-profit executive for high performing non-profits, an experienced trainer in the community-based organization, education, and correction sectors, an adjunct lecturer for Juvenile Justice courses at both Santa Clara University School of Law and Lincoln Law School, and recently a children’s author. Aila is well-versed in international not-for-profit work and has extensive experience in supporting international efforts in the areas of conservation, employment, and poverty alleviation.

In 2018, Aila and her family (husband and three children) realized a decade-long dream to travel the globe together for 54 weeks. With an emphasis on building empathy and global community through humanitarian and environmental learning, the family of five (Franklin Street Globetrotters) visited 41 countries and partnered with over 25 NGOs/initiatives to preserve cultural and natural wisdom.

Living with intention as a compassionate advocate of community kindness, planet protection, and family togetherness, Aila is deeply committed to contributing to a world in which disparity does not limit people’s access to opportunity.
