The Interaction Institute for Social Change (IISC) brings nearly 30 years of experience to our mission: to build collaborative capacity in individuals, organizations, and networks working for social justice and racial equity.

When IISC started in 1993, we brought the power of collaboration to the social sector through our work with thousands of individuals, and hundreds of organizations and networks working to advance social justice. Over time we focused explicitly on the profound and persistent racial inequities that destroy people, communities, and the planet and that account for many of the challenges our clients face. Guided by our values and Collaborative Change Lens, we deepened our approach to supporting individuals, organizations, and networks to shift systems so that groups and communities that have been historically marginalized and oppressed by racism and other ism’s have an equitable share in the power and control of organizational and societal resources in order to ensure they are able to thrive and contribute to their communities and organizations.

Watch the video below of IISC’s history.

Our commitment to living social justice and racial equity extends to our people and human resources. We welcome and encourage people of all backgrounds to apply and to bring their full and unique selves to our hiring process. If you practice and believe in our values of love, racial equity, and the power of networks, we hope you will consider our organization as a potential employer. IISC is an equal opportunity employer committed to hiring employees regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, disability, age, sexual orientation, veteran status, and other protected statuses.
