On July 3rd we will convene a group of ‘system stewards’ from civil society organisations, to explore the role and practice of systems stewardship. 

As we move towards the next shift in public services, focussing on system change towards more joined-up, relational and adaptive support and care, we believe there is a distinct and important role that is needed, to support collaboration across systems and places.

We invite you to listen to system stewards reflect on the questions and aspects of stewardship which they are grappling with. There will then be a chance for everyone to discuss and reflect in small discussion groups.

Questions we will explore:

  • What are we stewarding?  
  • Who are we stewarding on behalf of? 
  • Who are we accountable to? 
  • Where does our legitimacy come from?
  • What’s distinctive about the system stewardship role?  
  • What do civil society organisations in particular bring to the role?
  • How do stewards foster more equitable and inclusive places and systems?

Who should attend?

This conversation is relevant for anyone that is interested in transforming systems for public good. We welcome community activists, public service users and workers, civil society organisations, funders, and commissioners to join.
