Can our programs foster societal change?

Programs will do what we design them to do (of course, with some exceptions). Good design leads to good outcomes. So, one way to change the design is the involve community at every step of the way. 

This is complex. It may be so complex as to push us back into our safe zones of self-contained design, to working with traditional, reliable partners. But working in safe zones doesn't usually advance our programs much.
