Philadelphia Social Innovations Journal is the first online publication to bring a public focus to social innovators and their nonprofit organizations, foundations and social sector businesses in the Greater Philadelphia area, to recognize their successes and encourage others around the country to strive for similar results. As a forum for the region’s foremost social innovators, the Journal shares their expertise, strategies and ideas about topics such as leadership, human capital and disruptive innovation.
There is a lot of creative energy in Philadelphia that results in innovative solutions to persistent problems. We don’t necessarily call the process “Social Innovation,” but that is certainly what it is. Sometimes naming a thing and giving it a showcase can have the affect both of acknowledging it and encouraging it. The Philadelphia Social Innovations Journal has the potential to do just that.”
