Social Innovator Showcase 2023

Be inspired. Be connected. Be activated.

Thank you for joining us at the 2023 Social Innovator Showcase!

On April 27, the Social Innovator Showcase will bring together individuals and organizations that share the Social Innovation and Change Initiative’s (SICI) commitment to advancing innovative efforts that address pressing social problems. Throughout the evening, you will have the opportunity to hear short presentations from student social innovators – Cheng Fellows – and connect with a community of social change leaders, students, and Harvard University colleagues.

We invite you to learn from fellow guests, share your experiences, and support the next generation of social innovation leaders advancing efforts that span across sectors, focus-areas, and geographies. Our hope is that your connection and engagement will support the continued acceleration of the Cheng Fellows and the movement for social changemaking.
