From the GPSIA website: ‘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.”
