For the past ten years, Root Causes’s Social Innovation Forum has been recognizing results-oriented non-profit organizations that are dedicated to effectively solving social problems faced today. GRLZradio.org, a Boston-based non-profit organization, has been selected as one of the five 2013 Social Innovators and will be awarded over $115,000 in cash and resources from Root Cause and its partners over the next 18 months. The mission for GRLZradio.org is promote education, economic opportunity, and self-sufficiency for women and girls living in Boston.
The Social Innovation Forum will host a series of events throughout the month of March to help us all think more broadly about the fields that we work in and ways that we can add value to others. GRLZradio.org will be featured at an event that focuses its discussion on women and girls on Thursday, March 21st, from 8:30 am to 10:00 am at Brown Rudnick, One Financial Center in downtown Boston.
The event at Brown Rudnick will be a precursor for the Social Innovator Showcase, which will take place on Thursday, May 9th, at the Microsoft New England Research & Development Center in Cambridge. At the Social Innovator Showcase, GRLZradio.org will be introduced to over 300 leaders from the business, government, and philanthropic sectors of Boston to share its unique mission and ways that it has helped to provide new opportunities and better lives for young women living in Boston.
The Over My Shoulder Foundation is another Boston-based non-profit organization that also uses a unique approach to mentoring. By focusing on “Designing the Next Generation“, the Over My Shoulder Foundation shows how powerful the art of mentoring can be, most specifically in the world of interior design.
