2021 Greater Philadelphia Social Innovations Awards
Posted by Philadelphia Social Innovations Journal on November 17, 2020
The 2021 Greater Philadelphia Social Innovations Awards celebrates Greater Philadelphia Social Innovators. We are driven by the belief that the potential for good ideas to inspire more good ideas cannot be underestimated. We inspire leaders and organizations to dream; create spaces for leaders to tap into their own creativity to innovate; endow leaders with the tools and knowledge to launch and grow their ideas; challenge leaders to become better versions of themselves, and transforms leaders and their organizations into Changemakers.
The theme of the 2021 awards, “Achieving a More Just Society,” 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. The 2021 awards are framed within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) which are the world’s blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
The Social Innovation Awards symbolize 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 new ideas into new innovative practices. These awards honor 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.
