A Celebration of Innovation with SOCF Cleveland

With more than two decades of investment and engagement to change the trajectory of poverty in Cleveland, the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland introduced a fellowship to bring new, innovative approaches to effect change. Inspired by national models and the selfless dedication of Clevelanders, The Innovation Mission selected five fellows with plans for innovative projects to disrupt the cycle of poverty. This initiative was built on the notion that one big idea could change everything.  

To mark the conclusion of this unique fellowship, we invite you for an evening of celebration as we honor the potential that lies in supporting innovation. At the Global Center for Health Innovation, join us to meet the fellows and their innovative journey; engage community leaders in discussion on innovative models at work; and learn about the future of innovation at the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland.

Featuring a panel discussion moderated by Darrielle Snipes, ideastream reporter/producer. Appetizers, beer and wine provided.
