OUR THEORY OF CHANGE

DEFINING HOW WE CREATE AND MEASURE SOCIAL CHANGE

DESIGN IMPACT MEASURES OUR THEORY OF CHANGE BY EVALUATING HOW MINDSETS, ACTIONS, AND CONDITIONS CHANGE OVER TIME. WE UNDERSTAND THAT IN ORDER FOR CONDITIONS TO CHANGE WE MUST FIRST CHANGE OUR ACTIONS AND MINDSETS.

CLICK HERE FOR A SUMMARY OF HOW MINDSETS, ACTIONS AND CONDITIONS INTERSECT WITH OUR THEORY OF CHANGE.

Click the boxes below to see the specific breakdown of how we understand mindsets, actions, and conditions. The cumulative impact of DI's work is represented through the integration of these measures. While the concepts of creativity, equity, and leadership informed the crafting of these lists of more than 100 indicators, we strongly believe all three must intersect as we work toward sustainable social change.

DI defines actions as
behaviors that ultimately impact a change in conditions.

DI defines conditions as changes in culture, structure, process, and resources across individuals,
organizations, and systems.
