Description

The 2018 Philadelphia Social Innovations Awards will be a night to remember as Greater Philadelphia's regional visionaries come together to celebrate their collective impact that is changing the social landscape across the region. This year marks the 10th anniversary of The Social Innovations Journal, co-founded in Philadelphia by Nicholas Torres and Tine Hansen-Turton. The annual celebration supports the Journal's continued expansion across the globe. This event is an incredible opportunity to stand alongside Greater Philadelphia's social entrepreneurs who are reshaping our neighborhoods and communities, and whose ideas are inspiring people around the world.


Benefit Event and Awards Ceremony: The 2018 Social Innovations Journal Awards will be a celebration of the Greater Philadelphia Region's topflight social enterprise visionaries. It is an opportunity for the Greater Philadelphia's social sector agents of change to come together to honor the progress that has been collectively made and the initiatives that serve as catalysts, spurring further social innovation and impact across the world. SIJ will honor the region's most passionate and accomplished social innovators and entrepreneurs and the work that they are doing to make Greater Philadelphia a more inclusive, equitable, and thriving region of opportunity for all residents.
