About Impact/Failure

Societal change is a tall, complex order with many moving parts and unique factors that could make or break an intervention. These programmes are designed to benefit those that exist on the margins of society and any gap in accepting and acknowledging failure could be critical. A bridge is necessary to achieve systemic, productive change. It is the need of the hour for us to come together and discuss our failures so we can avoid making the same mistakes, and recognise failure and learning as a core part of our organisational process.

Stories

A collection of failure stories as admitted by thought leaders and experts in the development sector. We welcome you to read, listen, and learn from these free-flowing conversations on failure.

Our Journey

I/F 2018

The Impact/Failure Conclave held in 2018 was an outcome of SELCO Foundation’s unwavering commitment to acknowledging failure and learning from it. The mission of the conference was to create an environment that encourages organisations to own their failures, understand what went wrong, learn what worked, and what can be carried forward.

I/F 2022

Following the disruption caused by COVID-19, SELCO Foundation returned in November 2022 to host the second edition of the Impact/Failure Conclave. The theme for the two-day conference was Beyond the Binary, which highlighted the often neglected aspects of success in failure and failure in success. The conclave opened up the narrative, blurred the boundaries of success and failure, and flipped these concepts to view them on a spectrum of impact and learning.

I/F 2025

The failures never stop and so shouldn’t learning from them. We are gearing up for our third conclave in 2025. Sign up below to stay informed.

The second edition of the Impact/Failure Conclave will be held in November 2022, the theme for which is Beyond the Binary. The idea is to open up the narrative of impact and failure in the development context, and examine interventions through the lens of successes in failures and failures in successes.
