Promoting Inclusive Markets and Financial Systems
Understanding and Adapting to Complex Markets
In this webinar presented by the University of New Hampshire Carsey School of Public Policy, human rights and development specialist Mary Morgan will be deconstructing markets from a systems perspective. Morgan will be presenting real market development examples that portray the key systems thinking concepts: feedback, delays, boundaries, leverage points, and self-organization. Participants will also get a preview of an online course that will provide a guided learning journey of discovery for market development professionals engaged in the field as they learn about, and apply, complex adaptive systems to a real life methodological challenge that her/his organization is facing.
Mary Morgan has been involved in human rights and economic development work since 1986. She started as a human rights witness with El Grupo de Apoyo Mutuo por el Aparecimiento con Vida de Nuestros Familiares - GAM (the Mutual Support Group for the Live Appearance of Our Relatives) in Guatemala. Recognizing early on that having the opportunity to earn an income is a basic human right, Mary's work morphed into microfinance and then market development. She has taken on senior management roles with CARE and Katalysis Partnership, and has consulted for SEEP, Katalyst, CIDA, UMCOR, IRC, ARC, MEDA, IFC-SEDF, ACDI/VOCA, IDE, Omidyar Network, Mercy Corps, Aid to Artisans, Street Kids International, as well as various other organizations.
