In this blog series, we’ll dive into the 22 changemaker roles. Each of these roles plays a part in driving transformation and working towards a just world in their unique way. We share them to help you discover your own role as a changemaker because supporting changemakers around the globe means creating a more whole, beautiful, and just world.

When it comes to transforming visions of a better world into reality, there’s one type of changemaker who can make it happen.

These individuals love problem-solving and don’t see hurdles as setbacks but as challenges to be tackled. If you go to them with an idea that will solve a social issue, they’ll not only build it — but ensure it meets and exceeds expectations.

These practical, determined changemakers are known as builders.

About the Builder

Builders have a strong drive to create and construct. In change work, they are the engine that drives ideas from the realm of imagination to reality. They don’t just build anything — but solutions that better the world in all kinds of forms, such as physical structures, systems, and organizations.
