The Centre for Social Impact and Philanthropy (CSIP) at Ashoka University is convening its 2nd annual Social Innovation Summit (SIS) on 18th and 19th November. This year’s summit, meeting online due to COVID-19 precautions as well as to accommodate heightened national demand for this topic, will focus on exploring innovative tools and strategies to address the pandemic’s impacts on India’s nonprofit landscape — including the digital divide, fundraising challenges and opportunities, mental health and well-being. Social impact leaders across India, as well as anyone interested in understanding more about the intersection of technology and civil society, are welcome to attend. Registration is free and open until the day of the summit.
Through #SIS2020, CSIP plans to showcase success stories related to emerging innovations and ethical best practices for the social sector. By providing a platform for these innovations, tools, and best practises for India’s social sector, particularly during this time, the objectives of the summit align with CSIP’s vision of a stronger civil society for a vibrant and equitable India. The two-day convening of co-creation sessions for industry leaders, workshops, virtual exhibits, and a discussion forum aims to provide an educational, engaging, and enlightening experience for participants. Featured speakers will include:
- Apar Gupta, Executive Director, Internet Freedom Foundation
- Rebecca MacKinnon, Director, Ranking Digital Rights
