Social Innovator of the Year
The Ballard Center’s Social Innovator of the Year Award recognizes an exceptional individual who is committed to finding and participating in innovative solutions to social problems.
Each year the Ballard Center celebrates our Social Innovator of the Year at an invite-only luncheon. Attendees have the privilege to hear exclusive insights from leading experts in social innovation. “There are a number of social ventures in the world that are recognized by various groups,” says Todd Manwaring, Ballard Center director. “What we do is we pick a group that is having phenomenal success that we would like to bring on campus.”
