As the days are getting shorter, many people reflect on the passing year and prepare to celebrate the welcoming of a new one. At the GIM, we are also reflecting on the past and welcoming the new. It is now two years since the GIM was founded in November 2020. This milestone meant time to rotate the Team of Board Members, which was done during the extraordinary General Assembly held on 18 November. The new President of the Board, Thomas Neufing, tells us what the most innovative thing has learned this month. Furthermore, the GIM looks forward to seeing all Members on 14 December at the Fireside chat on the Future of Innovation with our new Board, and to raising a glass to an Innovative 2023!
Summer is behind us, and the days are back to their normal rhythm for most of us. At the GIM, we’re busy preparing for another Innovation Movement Training, a great training opportunity for those who want to be part of a movement of like-minded leaders to learn and apply ways to advance innovation in their organization. Be inspired by the most innovative thing that Board Member Pradeep Kakkattil experienced recently, find the key takeaways of the annual General Assembly in this edition of the Newsletter, and learn more about the customized Human Centered Design Workshop we facilitated at UNHCR.
We published our first Annual Report, and curated no less than three Applicable Insights, on the topics of Artificial Intelligence, Innovation for Impact and the relational Works of Systems. We hosted three free publicly accessible events in March and April on Experimental Innovation, on Innovation at International NGOs and on Agile work methods. Regarding capacity building and ecosystem learning, we ran the Spring edition of the Innovation Movement Training with participants from UNHCR, UNOG, ILO, ITU, and the WEF. In addition, we began a webinar speakers series on Innovation in International Organizations exclusively for WTO. It's been a busy start of the year, and we're looking forward to many more events and learnings!

It includes key learnings from the events we ran in 2022; summaries of the research papers and articles published last year; and descriptions of the trainings we provided. Inside, you will also find several interviews with innovators who share their reflections on the future of innovation as a force for good. The Report finally looks ahead at 2023 – this year where we continue to focus our strategy and professionalize our experience for our members.
