Abstract

This chapter charts the development of an online leadership programme for young Cambodian entrepreneurs and managers. Culturally grounded practices are enacted in a context of designing social innovation, here paying particular attention to local practices, cultures and knowledge. The importance of anchoring leadership practices to familiar cultural and spiritual values is highlighted, and resources are created using local role models. The chapter advocates for a plurality of experiences when designing learning programmes to ensure that design’s universalist tendencies are not inadvertently recreated; this illustrates pluriversal ways of working that are central to designing culturally specific practices.
