"POZE. A paradigm for Social Change, from the inside out."


07:00 AM Pacific Time/

10:00 AM Eastern Time



This presentation offers an introduction in the POZE perspective and the related methodology. A case study from Haiti is used to illustrate its impact. The underpinning logic is that human life is the result of multiple dimensions which can be optimized only if their interplay is understood.

Presented by: Cornelia C. Walther

Cornelia C. Walther combines praxis and research. As a humanitarian practitioner, Cornelia worked for nearly two decades with UNICEF and the World Food Program in large scale emergencies in West Africa, Afghanistan and Haiti, mostly operating as head of communication. As coach and researcher, she collaborates since 2018 with the Center for humanitarian leadership at Deakin University.  Being part of the European Union’s Network on humanitarian assistance she lectured for five years at Aix-Marseille’s Law faculty. Cornelia holds a PhD in Law and is a certified yoga and meditation teacher.

Aside from her interest in the multiple shapes of influence, Cornelia's focus is on social transformation from the inside out, looking at individual aspirations as the point of departure. In 2017 she initiated the POZE (Purpose, Om, Zoom, Expression) dynamic in Haiti, offering individuals tools to identify and pursue their aspirations. The network is now expanding into the Americas, Africa and Europe. Her objective is to refine a methodology that influences people towards wanting to get involved in social change processes, rather than obliging them to act for the sake of others. In 2020 three of her books are published by  Palgrave/Springer, ‘Development, humanitarian action and social welfare’ (May), ‘Humanitarian work, social change and human behavior’ (June) and ‘Connection in times of Covid’ (August)
