Penn Current features the 2017 Franklin SP2 Social Innovation Prize and live pitch event

The winners of the inaugural Franklin SP2 Social Innovation Prize cite Kat Rosqueta’s course, “Social Impact Strategy, Analysis, and Leadership,” as a crucial contributor to their success in the competition.

 “Without the class, we couldn’t be here,” says [Robin] Kendall.

“From the beginning, we insisted that this class be open to graduate and advanced undergraduate students from all 12 schools at Penn,” Rosqueta explains. “Where else will a former investment banker work alongside a child therapist, or a former policy analyst have a class discussion with a former teacher who is sitting next to a former farmer? One of the great joys of teaching this course is that time and again, we see how the best thinking comes from integrating knowledge across silos, for real-world impact.”
