• THe MovingWorlds Institute

    Join us for a transformative, cohort-based international experience that empowers you to make a positive impact with your career whether you’re staying in your job or looking for a new one.

     

     

  • Gain experience to earn a world-positive career

    The MWI combines learning, networking, and coaching to compliment a real, in-the-field Experteering experience so you can stand out from the crowd to earn - or create - your dream job.

     

    The MovingWorlds Institute (MWI) is led by a team of experienced practitioners and academics that will teach you critical skills in design-thinking and shared-value, while developing your cross-cultural collaboration and global leadership competencies.

    In-person Cohort Building

    With personal and professional development

    Meet with your cohort members from around the world to explore your personal and professional drivers, develop skills in design thinking and social entrepreneurship, and build your personal learning plan.

    Learn Design Thinking

    While Building Real Skills

    Just like MBA programs use case-studies to build business leaders, we use case-based curriculum to move you from theory to practice in Human-centered Design Thinking and Shared Value. Lessons are delivered through our virtual calls, monthly Q&A with industry leaders, cohort-based homework, ongoing Slack chats, and an in-person, 3-day immersive.

    High Impact Placements

    With Innovative Organizations Around the World

    As part of the MovingWorlds Institute, you’ll get premium-plus support from the MovingWorlds team – normally only reserved for our corporate clients. They’ll work with you, one on one, to find a project with an inspiring social enterprise from our global partnership network that builds on the skills you have and stretches you to grow. More details on potential placements below.

    Cohort-Based Learning

    So You Build a Global Network

    If accepted, you’ll join other inspiring and motivated professionals from around the world that are looking to build their design thinking skills and global experience. While you’ll each engage with your own Experteering experience, you’ll be working on it at the same time as other cohort members so you can support each other and grow together along the way. You’ll also get connected to the MovingWorlds alumni community for connections to social enterprises, impact investors, and changemakers around the world.

    Personal Capstone Project

    To Help You Standout

    After your field experience, you’ll highlight the impact you made and skills you gained in a capstone presentation and article. Your peers and MWI staff will help you turn it into a case-study worthy piece of content that you can use in interviews to stand out.

    Cultural Agility & Leadership Development

    To Help You Work More Effectively with Other Cultures and Prepare for Global Leadership

    Through our partnership with Aperian Global®, Experteers will have access to GlobeSmart®, an online resource designed to help you become more effective in a cross-cultural work environment. You’ll learn about your own unique work-style, identify potential challenges between styles most often found in the country you're Experteering in and get advice and concrete strategies to pave the way for success throughout the program and beyond.

    Senior Level Exposure

    To Develop Insider Connections and Unparalleled Insights

    In addition to prominent guest speakers, we’ll connect you with a mission-aligned mentor that will assist you in making a bigger impact in the field, and help guide you through your personal career transformation.

    Career, Resume, & Interview Coaching

    To Help You Standout and Earn Your Impact Career

    The institute will culminate in a team-based career discovery program led by an established career coach, who will provide personalized resume guidance. The program will also include career transition guidance from leaders at companies like PWC, Amazon, Gates Foundation and more

    Identify Your Purpose Patterns

    For Long-term Career Satisfaction and Impact

    Through our strategic partnership with Imperative, each participant will have their Individual Purpose Diagnostic taken and assessed for them - a tool only reserved for qualified companies and teams. The findings from this will be used to pick an Experteering project, mentor, and career path that aligns with the drivers that will make you come alive.

MovingWorlds membership can also be purchased using PayPal by requesting a PayPal invoice from support@movingworlds.org.
Lifetime membership - No Longer available
Lifetime membership was offered to members May 2015 through October 16, 2015. This membership will no longer be available to new members as of October 16, 2015. Users with lifetime membership will retain their lifetime membership for as long as MovingWorlds.org exists as a business and continues to offer Experteering matching support.
MovingWorlds can end the membership at any time by refunding your membership.
Personal support add-on
In addition to membership, users can purchase a personal support add on. This personal support add on comes with additional one-on-one support via email, phone calls, skype calls, or other communication as requested by you. This extra time allows MovingWorlds to find you more specific projects, help you plan a trip as a couple or family, and/or provide you enough support to plan your trip.
The personal support add on fee is non-refundable.
MovingWorlds is entitled to end the amount of personal support it provides after 10 hours of staff time provided to the purchaser.

You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties.

MovingWorlds only provides the contact information to enable a professional and educational exchange rather like a classified listing and is NOT a travel agency or organized exchange program. All arrangements are entirely between the host and the Experteer. All Experteers must obtain, on their own initiative, the relevant visa for the country they are travelling to. All questions regarding travel and visas (working, Experteering, or otherwise) should be put to the relevant embassy in the home country before travelling. MovingWorlds does not endorse listed organizations, and Experteers are not agents of MovingWorlds.
