The Center for Social Impact Strategy is a research and action center based in the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy & Practice. CSIS provides training and tools to visionary individuals who seek to have a social impact around the world. We are committed to understanding and sharing the distinctive strategies adopted by changemakers as they creatively generate new ideas and scale their organizations for social impact. We support a thriving global community of world changers who support each other’s growth and success for effective and healthy social impact initiatives. Our programs invite social impact practitioners from the nonprofit, corporate, and government sectors all over the world to join an incredible cohort of changemakers. Successful participants come from a range of impact areas, including education, environment and sustainability, arts and culture, workforce development, etc. and feature many job titles including nonprofit or social enterprise founder, executive director, board member, volunteer, program manager, Director of Social Impact, corporate social responsibility professional, and others wanting to grow into mission-driven leadership roles and implement useful strategy tools to advance their social missions and improve their organizational health.
CSIS has lots of options for mission-driven initiatives — please first read about our public offerings. Below, we describe three primary pathways of additional support: to help large organizations train multiple members in our public programs; to help organizations with strategic planning; and curriculum development to help organizations share information about important strategy topics with members of their organization.
If you are interested in anything mentioned below, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a 1:1 call or to schedule a presentation by a member of our team to your organization, team, or grantees. If you would prefer a written proposal, we can accommodate that need too.
