SRV action implications

The SRV monograph includes a useful chart laying out categories of SRV action implications that can help us think about how to implement SRV, with an eye towards helping societally devalued people to have greater access to the ‘good things of life.’ The chart is on pages 103-105 in the 2014 edition of the SRV monograph (4th expanded edition). The content of the chart is also discussed at leadership level SRV workshops.


The chart is divided into action implication strategies on the level of:

1 an individual person

2 an individual’s primary social system (e.g., family or friends)

3 an individual’s secondary social system (e.g., workplace, gym, church)

4 the larger society


At each level, we can think of action implications related to:


The following chart does not replicate the full chart in the SRV monograph, but selectively shares a few examples in each category simply as a way to encourage further discussion on this implementation issue. I strongly encourage you to look at the full chart.

LARGER SOCIETY attitude shaping
