2017 SEEP Annual Conference: Catalyzing Transformative Change

Event location: 
Arlington, VA - United States
02 Oct 2017 - 04 Oct 2017

The 2017 SEEP Network Annual Conference will bring together leading practitioners, funders, research organizations and private sector actors dedicated to promoting more inclusive and resilient markets and financial systems. Under the conference theme - Catalyzing Transformative Change - the participants will deepen their understanding and commitment to approaches that bring about large scale positive change.

The conference will explore insights garnered from behavioral science that enhance impact, strategies that positively address discriminatory social and cultural norms, incentives that help catalyze change in relationships of market actors and engage private sector firms, and transformative new technologies. The speakers will share proven practice and innovative strategies that modify both the structure and dynamics of market systems in ways that contribute to greater empowerment of vulnerable populations. Likewise, they will also examine the important change processes within programs and organizations that lead to more adaptive management and effective learning.
