The badging system measures how exposure to impact innovation through a Schoolab experience can influence individuals to become systems-level change-makers. Over time, badge earners can reassess their badges to understand the impact they are bringing about in their personal, academic, and professional careers. Each badge represents a specific amount of transitions that Schoolab can track.
Unlike traditional skills badges, our credential tracks skills, expertise, and lifestyle choices that are often undervalued when building a team or identifying new hires. The Transition Badge helps industries recognize impactful achievements and how an orientation towards sustainability and social impact can positively influence personal, organizational, and societal success.
Badges are distributed to participants in all of Schoolab’s products, including student programs, corporate training, learning expeditions, and internal training. Our badging system aims to integrate impact fluency into all Schoolab missions to promote alignment and drive impactful outcomes for our partners and learners.
