Our Executive Director is heading to the White House!!!
Our Executive Director, Diane Douglas, is heading to the other Washington for the Forum for Citizen-Based Social Innovators at the White House on Tuesday! Can't believe it? We could hardly believe it either! Read the invite for yourself:
"The Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation in coordination with the Office of Public Engagement would like to invite you to the White House on the afternoon of Tuesday July 3rd to participate in a forum to discuss the important role that citizen innovation plays in expanding opportunity and addressing social issues.
Senior Administration officials as well as leading citizen-based social innovators from around the country will come together for this event. The afternoon will be comprised of a series of briefings, panels, and small-and-large group discussions that will explore how organizations that focus on citizenship are creating innovative models and entrepreneurial ventures to make a positive impact on our economy and our society, often while serving our most vulnerable communities."
