Mia builds people’s capacity and leadership skills for effecting transformational change.
A founding partner of the Oxford office, Mia Eisenstadt is a designer and facilitator of systemic change projects using both the Social Labs and Transformative Scenarios methodologies. She has worked on a range of issues, including climate change and renewable energy, mental health and well-being, sustainable finance and education, and community resilience. Mia brings an ethnographic research perspective, with attention to and care for the idiosyncrasies and nuances of human behaviour.
With a keen interest in learning from both success and failure in systemic change projects, Mia recently facilitated and co-wrote a review of Project Sunrise, a joint initiative by Oxfam and Unilever to support farmers in Azerbaijan in gaining access to global supply chains.
