Organizations focusing on today’s social innovations range from a handful experienced players (Root Cause, Ashoka, Stanford Social Innovation Review) to a growing presence of regional nonprofits and/or social enterprises addressing fundamental community problems. With a newly established federal agenda to stimulate and nurture social innovation in this country, how will Sonal Shah, head of the White House Office of Social Innovation create a national agenda sparked by efforts on the ground that can spread across the country and line up with other successful global initiatives such as the United Kingdom’s Office of the Third Sector and Canada’s growing Centers for Social Innovation?
On Wednesday December 9 at 10:30 CST, during the Governor’s Nonprofit Leadership Conference, Business Boomer’s live webcast will feature a distinct panel of leaders to discuss collaborative efforts that stimulate socially innovative activities in order to help answer that question.
Anne DeHaro, Public Affairs Director and host of Clear Channel Radio, will be facilitate a discussion and field questions from an online audience as she interview panelists Andrew Wolk, CEO of Rootcause (www.rootcause.org), Elizabeth Darling, CEO of One Star Foundation (www.onestarfoundation.org), & Stacy Caldwell, Executive Director of Dallas Social Venture Partners (www.dsvp.org).
