a series of informal chats to put Greater Philadelphia social good in context

The #OWNPHL Debriefs are a series of informal, brown-bag lunches hosted by Generocity, in which we discuss current social good events and topics.

WHY: We want to help people better understand the landscape of social good and innovation in the city, current topics that affect those people/organizations, and what this means to Philly’s future. This is an opportunity for people to connect in a relaxed environment and spend an hour talking about social good in the context of our community, ask questions, and build new relationships.

HOW: Each month we will review 4 to 6 events that have taken place over the last month (reviewing February in March, March in April and so on). They will be inclusive of all sectors: nonprofit, for-profit, government and other community events.

This month’s featured events will be:

New Directions for Seybert Foundation and Bread & Roses Community Fund
DVG's new program series, Inside Stories, features DVG member organizations sharing the inside scoop behind new initiatives and/or directions they are taking in their grantmaking. Kicking off this series will be leaders from the Seybert Foundation and Bread and Roses Community Fund, who will give the inside story on some major new directions they are both taking with their grantmaking.

Ignite Philly 11
Ignite Philly is part of a worldwide network that entertains and educates people in short 5 minute bursts. Ignite Philly is the local group, and is our way to highlight great ideas coming to life here in Philadelphia. These talks are a ’spark’ if you will, they are lightening fast and leave people with a new idea to mull over and talk about.
Enough is Enough: Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Violence in the Black Community
This conference is designed to stimulate action, address realistic solutions and demonstrate the power of great minds who want to make a difference.
What's Cooking? Exploring Issues and Innovation around Senior Hunger Relief
GenPhilly, a program of Philadelphia Corporation for Aging, is a network of emerging professionals who are inspiring all Philadelphians to connect with older adults through their work and personal lives.
2013 Annual PHENND Conference
This year’s theme will be “K-16 Partnerships” and will feature workshops from faculty, administrators, students, and community partners from around the region. Keynote speaker Darlene Green Kamine is the founding Executive Director of the Community Learning Center Institute, a not for profit agency which is dedicated to the development of all schools as community learning centers, responsive to the vision and needs of each school and its neighborhood.
