Impact at Scale

Working alongside experts and students, we surface, accelerate, and scale promising interventions to fill market, policy, or structural gaps that may impede faster positive social change.

Who We Are

We are an experiential hub with two key mandates.

Through Georgetown University, we operate as an orchestrating broker across sectors to increase the probability of scaled positive impact, ultimately provoking grassroot and institutional leaders to think, behave, and collaborate differently toward a shared vision of prosperity for all. 

We believe that accelerating social change hinges on all sectors operating in concert. We take promising, impact-ripe efforts that fill ecosystem gaps and ready them for scale. Our experiential work always includes students as our long-game, to actively ready future leaders in the evolving impact space.

A training ground for students and lifelong learners.

Equipping future global leaders with the tools and approaches to further the common good.

A catalyst for scalable, leading-edge ecosystem ideas.

Promoting outcome-driven solutions in three primary areas: Fair Finance, Data + Digital, and Sustainable Student Impact.

Engineers, designers, user-experience pros, web developers. If you work in the civic tech space, we want to hear from you as we scope out the landscape for the field. Survey closes November 30.

The talent pool of 22-29 year-olds is eager to jump into public service roles, so technology and innovation leaders should focus more efforts on the recruitment and career development of this cohort of emerging professionals. Digital natives are a valuable asset to any organization and need career pathways towards government digital service.

You've seen the amazing things we do here at the Center, now's your chance to be part of it. Our Data+Digital team has four openings and the deadline to apply is THURSDAY, NOV. 19.

Upcoming Events

November 19, 11:30am ET – Reforming Unemployment Insurance with Bold New Initiatives and the Future of Work

The pandemic has left 21.5 million workers unemployed and an additional 11.5 million workers with reduced pay. State unemployment insurance systems have failed to keep pace and millions of workers are waiting for pandemic-related benefits.

This two-part event, hosted in partnership with New America and the Day One Project, will explore the Digital Benefits Coalition, and then dive deeper into needed reforms to unemployment insurance and forward-looking plans to build a more resilient work environment in the United States.

Our Approach

We value things differently.

Our work centers on investing in outcomes for individuals and society. We believe impact at scale requires the courage to think, behave, and collaborate differently.

• Thinking differently. The Beeck Center starts with outcomes first. We question and redefine incentive structures. We scale innovative solutions beyond just organizations. We see it as a social movement of coordinated efforts.

• Behaving differently. Through our applied research, the Beeck Center showcases new models. We don’t shy away from failure. We meet people where they are, knowing that tools, frameworks, and approaches are important to achieve outcomes.

• Collaborating differently. We work beyond silos. The Beeck Center convenes and knits together public, private, and civic actors to co-create solutions leading to lasting positive social outcomes.

… and students get to roll-up their sleeves and participate in all of it.
