Forefront’s Social Innovation Roundtable invites you to a very timely and interesting discussion about the critical role of innovation to address social problems in the city of Chicago.  We will be joined by Michelle Cohen, Director, Innovation & Acceleration, CME Group Center for Innovation.

Attendees will hear from a panel of innovation practioner’s who are using innovation to address community challenges; understand the various way innovation is being developed and walk away with ideas to incorporate innovative practices to increase the health of your organizations.

Please note that this meeting will be particularly exciting because we will be launching a 2018 Greater Chicago's Social Innovations, Social Enterprises, and Public/Private Partnerships Publication.

For this reason, we are writing to invite a select few organizations and individuals to submit your social sector model, social innovation, social enterprise, and/or public/private partnership article idea for inclusion in this edition highlighting Chicago’s 2018 BEST social innovations.   Please consider submitting your social innovation article idea (max of 1000 characters) by March 9, 2018 here:
