00:00:07.333,00:00:09.333
[TEXT: Diana Wells, President of Ashoka] My advice is to
get started.

00:00:09.333,00:00:13.542
What we find the biggest barrier for change-making

00:00:13.542,00:00:17.458
is that people don’t give themselves permission to make change,

00:00:17.458,00:00:24.750
and a statistic that I keep running into from different parts of
the world and from different sectors

00:00:24.750,00:00:29.458
is that 50 percent of the world
believe that change is not possible.

00:00:29.458,00:00:38.542
And so, part of what makes my job so much fun is that I can’t
believe that,

00:00:38.542,00:00:43.917
because every day I’m encountering people who don’t believe
that and are enacting and proving that again and again,

00:00:43.917,00:00:50.167
so our strategy of making social entrepreneurs
and social entrepreneurship visible

00:00:50.167,00:00:00.000
is to … is to come against that perception that change is not
possible.
