for the 21st Century:
Event Description“In less than a generation, we have witnessed a tectonic shift in the way people think about and work toward social change. The reasons are myriad and stem from both disaffection—impatience with existing programs and policies—and idealism—a profound desire for meaningful work that makes a positive impact on the world. The groundswell of new activism, or what we call social entrepreneurship, is manifest across society as creative change makers test new solutions to entrenched social, economic, and environmental problems.”
So begins Georgia Levenson Keohane’s new book, Social Entrepreneurship for the 21st Century, which provides a lively and comprehensive introduction to all facets of this “tectonic shift.” Not all students of social entrepreneurship are quite as sanguine about it, however, setting the scene for a stimulating conversation here at the Bradley Center on February 27th.
Our distinguished panel will include the author Georgia Levenson Keohane; Howard Husock of the Manhattan Institute; Nonprofit Quarterly's Rick Cohen; and Ashoka President Diana Wells. Hudson Institute Senior Fellow William Schambra will moderate the discussion. Lunch will be served.
