  • Reflections on Change

    Megan Hooper is one of the main facilitators associated with the human rights scenario development process for the Western Cape, initiated by the Unit for Human Rights Mainstreaming & Capacity Building at Stellenbosch University.  She is a registered clinical psychologist who enjoys the intricacy and complexity of both clinical and organisational work. Hooper is a part-time lecturer at the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS).  She maintains an interest in community-based work and processes that deliver on South African transformation as a society.

    Hooper reflected as follows on the human rights scenario development process that she helps to facilitate:

    It is often difficult to pinpoint when a change started.  Or when it actually happened.  And most painfully, when it got stuck. I am so intrigued by change as a process. I am curious about the mechanisms that facilitate change and the catalysts that activate change.  I am wary of the fallout of change.  When I work with groups on change at the moment I use several photos.

    One is of the ocean, and which opens a conversation about the ebb and flow of change, the way that it builds and gathers power and momentum. And the way that it crashes into whitewash and has to build again. It allows a discussion about tides and tsunamis and many waves that happen all at once, especially on a stormy day.
          
    Another is of a billboard on the Nelson Mandela Bridge that was erected in the build up to the 2010 World Cup. And I use it to ask the question – So what is the next revolution?!

    Isn’t it wonderful that change happens in the process of a group of people having a conversation about a difficult issue? Through the scenario development process we began a set of conversations with a group of people and as we talked our perspectives changed.  It is a conversation about change that we will continue to have, one that I hope will expand and deepen with time.
