The GlobalizerX on Employment is part of “THIS WORKS” - an initiative launched by Ashoka with the support of the Robert Bosch Stiftung to support the scale and replication of proven solutions and ideas for employment in Southern Europe.

The GlobalizerX on Employment is simultaneously run by Ashoka in the UK, FranceGermany and Austria with the aim of accelerating 15 social innovations in the field of employment in Greece, Italy and Spain. The program will showcase and help spread in these countries the most effective citizen-led solutions from the Ashoka network that could help generate change and create an ecosystem for social entrepreneurship and employment in Southern Europe.




During 3 months, 15 Ashoka Fellows worked on their scaling strategies with advisory teams of senior business executives and strategy consultants. Fellows include:

- Charlie Murphy, co-founded Partners for Youth Empowerment, a global organisation that awakens the creative leadership of over 200,000 young people annually;

- Serra Titiz from Turkey, is reducing school and work drop-out rates by enabling youths to transparently choose from the widest range of possible career aspirations both on- and offline;

- Gregor Demblin designed Europe's first online career platform with a simple and efficient way to include people with disabilities in all types of job offerings.


The advisory process culminated into a 2-day GlobalizerX event hosted in London on the 19th and 20th of September. At the event, global business leaders met with Fellows and critically analyzed their scaling strategies while also offering Fellows the strategic support and insight needed to enable these innovations to increase their impact dramatically.
