Women for Social Innovation (WSI) will host an information session regarding its 2013 Turning Point Prize on THRUSDAY, October 18, 2012 at 5pm. The mission of WSI and the Turning Point Prize is to provide philanthropic investments to emerging social innovators whose ideas hold promise to improve life for women, girls and families, in the Greater Philadelphia area. The Turning Point Prize is seed money (up to $15,000) given annually to an emerging “social innovator” – who develops a creative and entrepreneurial solution to a difficult problem affecting a segment of women, girls, and families. Each applicant’s idea will be judged on the definition of the problem, the project goals and impact, innovativeness of the idea, feasibility of the project plan, the vision of success, and entrepreneurial spirit.
The information session will be held at 123 S. Broad Street, 8 th Floor, Philadelphia, PA at 5pm on Thursday, October 18, 2012. To RSVP, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
WOMEN’S WAY is a catalyst for change with three initiatives to impact women, girls, and families in our region: grantmaking, advocacy, and public education. Starting in November of 2011, the grantmaking program will consist of two levels of funding: the brand new WOMEN’S WAY Action Partners (WWAP) and the Community Women’s Fund, ongoing since 2006.
