Introduction
Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR) is an award-winning magazine and website that covers cross-sector solutions to global problems. SSIR is written for and by social change leaders in the nonprofit, business, and government sectors who view collaboration as key to solving environmental, social, and economic justice issues.

Published at the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, SSIR bridges academic theory and practice with ideas about achieving social change. It covers a wide range of subjects, from microfinance and green business to social networks and human rights.

SSIR
cohosts the annual Nonprofit Management Institute with the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) each fall. SSIR also hosts webinars on important, cutting-edge topics in the field of social change through its SSIR Live! series.

SSIR aims to inform and inspire leaders of social change.
