Student AMA (Ask Me Anything) Series

The Social Innovation + Change will host the first installment of our Student AMA (Ask Me Anything) series featuring Rebecca Trupin, MPA/ID ’20 and 2019 Map the System Finalist. This series aims to elevate the voice and learning students have to offer to each other and to the greater community.

During this roundtable conversation, Rebecca will reflect on her experience with the Map the System competition and share findings from the research she conducted with her team to examine the complexity of deforestation in Tanzania. Audience members will be introduced to the less-than-obvious factors that contribute to this environmental problem and walk away with a better understanding of sustainable forestry.

Rebecca grew up in Tanzania and the United States and considers both places home. She came to the Kennedy School following 7 years of work experience that ranged from social science research and program evaluation to management consulting to setting up coffee cooperatives in Tanzania. Working with cooperatives sparked her interest in social change and collective action, particularly among the poor and marginalized. Her current interests focus on exploring where and how collective action might be possible in a given context, through understanding political and social systems and systems change.

All are welcome to attend. This event will especially appeal to folks interested in systems-change, Map the System competition, and sustainable forestry.
