"The Role of Social Innovation in Democracy"
Democratic political institutions are being called into question and under threat, as we have seen in many parts of the world, including the United States, Western Europe, Brazil, and Hong Kong. The concentration of wealth and economic power in the hands of a few people and businesses is giving rise to the creation of new types of organizations and calls for a new type of economy in which the fruits of economic activity and power are shared more equally and democratically. Even within the social sector itself, nonprofit organizations and philanthropists are facing demands for greater inclusion, democratic governance, and power-sharing.
Join Stanford Social Innovation Review—the leading global publication on social change theory and practice—for our Frontiers of Social Innovation 2023 convening, "The Role of Social Innovation in Democracy," as we gather international leaders from nonprofit organizations, philanthropy, academia, research, business, and government. Over the course of three, half-day sessions, we will meet to question, debate, and discuss the relationship between social innovation and democracy and the role that social innovation plays in creating a more just and democratic society.
Be part of the conversation as we examine important topics, such as...
