Power of Social Innovation : How Civic Entrepreneurs Ignite Community Networks for Good (MP3-CD)
about this item
The Power of Social Innovation offers public officials, social entrepreneurs, philanthopits, and individual citizens the insights and skills to create healthier communities and promote innovative solutions to public and social problems. This seminal work is based on Stephen Goldsmith's decades of experience, extensive ongoing research, and interviews with 100+ top leader from a wide variety of sectors.
Goldsmith shows that everyday citizens can themselves produce extraordinary social change. The book explores the levers and guiding principles used by champions of civic progress who drive new organizations, new interventions, or new policies to enhance social conditions.
The Power of Social Innovation features illustrative case studies of change-oriented philanthropists, public officials, and civic leaders. While all collaborate across sectors, they run both start-ups and established organizations, such as the New York City public schools, United Way of America, the United Negro College Fund, and Teach for America.
