Greater Philadelphia Social Innovations Awards OVERVIEW: The 2020 Greater Philadelphia Social Innovations Awards celebrates the Social Innovations Journal, an online publication driven by the belief that the potential for good ideas to inspire more good ideas cannot be underestimated. The Social Innovations Journal inspires leaders and organizations to dream; creates spaces for leaders to tap into their own creativity to innovate; endows leaders with the tools and knowledge to launch and grow their ideas; challenges leaders to become better versions of themselves, and transforms leaders and their organizations into Changemakers.
2020 THEME: INNOVATING IDEAS, REVOLUTIONIZING REALITIES
recognizes organic leadership re-envisioning the challenges communities face and finding solutions by innovating ideas to reshape communities through innovated programs, policies, and disrupting the political landscape to revolutionize realities to bring us all forward to a more equitable and inclusive tomorrow — today. We believe the Awards’ theme symbolizes that the success of the social sector depends upon us embracing both tried-and-true traditional practices while stepping out of the box to grow these ideas into new innovative practices.
WHY: The Greater Philadelphia SIJ Awards honors our region’s most passionate social innovators, entrepreneurs and Changemakers whose work and social impact too often goes unacknowledged, yet their efforts are what makes our communities across Greater Philadelphia the thriving region of innovation and opportunity they are for all people.
