Digital transformation cannot be created overnight. It requires commitment from the highest levels of an organisation, and a significant shift in culture, resourcing, processes and tools. But if sector organisations are serious about delivering greater social impact in the current climate - digital maybe the only game changer we've got.
In our sector, we tend to think that tech can solve everything, and many start-ups are making positive societal changes through innovative approaches and business models. But some of the world's most fundamental problems - like poverty, equality, or access to clean water - can't be fixed with an app, or even with a social enterprise or business-led approach.
During a time of such social and political upheaval in which political leaders are seen more as being the problem than the solution, hashtags have given people something to believe in. In the absence of effective political leadership hashtags have created a space in which people can connect, unite and march side by side.
The question is not whether we are leaders but what we are leading ourselves and others towards? Leadership is intimately bound up with narrative, and the work of developing leaders, if it is to be relevant, must concern itself with the wider context of the narratives we find ourselves in and those we are creating with every choice we make.
