Spring/Summer edition, Philadelphia Social Innovations Journal

Posted by on June 20, 2011

Happy Spring!

Welcome to the Spring/Summer edition of the Philadelphia Social Innovations Journal (PSIJ), the Philadelphia region’s social impact journal. Continuing our new focus on theme-based editions regarding pressing social issues, Issue 7 features articles, editorials, columns and interviews on three special topics:

* Partnerships Toward Collective Social Impact
* Community Impact Strategies, and
* Generational Leadership Targeting Social Entrepreneurs.


As always, we want to thank our more than 80 volunteers who write for the Journal and help plan and coordinate events and seminars. You have an open invitation to join us! PSIJ’s growing readership and value to the region stem from the work of its volunteers, whose collective knowledge keeps our Journal innovative and whose outreach touches all of us.

Do take advantage of the opportunity to Nominate an Innovation, so we can continue to feature social innovators and innovations in our region.


We hope we’ve supplied you with some stimulating Summer reading. We will be back in the Fall with new editions of PSIJ and events that continue to help advance the region.

Very truly yours,

Tine Hansen-Turton, Co-founder, tine@philasocialinnovations.org
