The Ignite Institute is excited to present Decolonizing Social Innovation in partnership with Impact Hub Berkeley.
Decolonizing Social Innovation is a 1-day conference-style retreat dedicated to identifying colonizing behaviors and mindsets in ourselves, our interactions, and our workplaces, to building skills to dismantle colonizing practices, and to creating a personal action plan to embrace decolonizing practices. To set us on our journey, the introduction and panel will explore how the history of colonization manifests in organizations, products, practices and ourselves, learn about intentional cultural shifts they have made to decolonize core practices of social innovation, and offer us a living example of decolonizing communication and collaboration.

LEAD FACILITATOR: Mahsea Evans, PSR

Mahsea Evans is an educator, artist, and ordained minister who has dynamically engaged the topics of religious pluralism and social change through writings, lectures, performances and workshops. He presently works as an Assistant Pastor St. Marks United Methodist Church in Sacramento, and has been a trainer for Ignite Institute for two years. He received both his Master of Divinity and Master of Theological Studies from Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley.

FACULTY PRESENTOR & MODERATOR: Dr. Filipe Maia, PSR

Dr. Filipe Maia’s research and teaching focus on liberation theologies, the Christian eschatological imagination, theology and economics, and Wesleyan theology. His scholarship pays special attention to the ways in which imaginaries about the future shape politics, economics, cultural patterns, and religious practices. Employing sources ranging from Latin American liberation theology, Marxist philosophy, and contemporary writings on finance, Professor Maia’s doctoral dissertation builds a theological critique of the temporality of financial capitalism proposing alternative ways of imagining the future.
