New publication promotes innovative, effective solutions to social problems.
MENLO PARK, Calif.– Hewlett Foundation grantee The Center for Social Innovation (CSI) at the Stanford Graduate School of Business has just launched a new publication, the Stanford Social Innovation Review (www.ssireview.com).
The Review presents the best ideas about nonprofit management, philanthropy, and corporate citizenship. The Review’s approach is based on a philosophy of dissolving boundaries and brokering a dialogue between the public, private, and nonprofit sectors with the goal of more effectively resolving social problems. The Review is published for all who organize activities and allocate resources explicitly earmarked for promoting the greater good: those who lead our foundations, our firms, our government agencies, and especially our nonprofit organizations.
The Review explores a wide range of topics, including management, leadership and governance of nonprofit organizations, corporate social responsibility and citizenship, social entrepreneurship, philanthropy, private-public partnerships, social change, as well as the application of knowledge from the major functional areas of management to the social sector (e.g., economics, marketing, finance, operation and technology management, and human resource management). The subscriber base includes nonprofit executives, philanthropists, public policy makers, concerned business leaders, consultants, academics, and students.
In an effort to ensure the highest level of quality, the Review has established an advisory board of diverse, highly regarded nonprofit practitioners and academics. The advisory board includes:
- Elizabeth Boris, Urban Institute
- Jeffrey Bradach, The Bridgespan Group
- Peter Frumkin, Harvard University
- Joe Galaskewicz, Arizona State University
- Jan Masaoka, CompassPoint

- James A. Phills, Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior and Codirector, Center for Social Innovation, Stanford Graduate School of Business
- Walter Powell, Professor of Education and Professor of Organizational Behavior and Sociology, Stanford University

Sutton, was excerpted from the April issue of the journal and reprinted in the March 2003 Grantsmanship Report.
The Review is available at select Kepler’s, Borders, and Barnes & Noble book stores nationwide. Subscriptions are also available at www.ssireview.org.
