Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR) is an award-winning magazine and website that covers cross-sector solutions to global problems. It 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 at Stanford University, SSIR bridges academic theory and practice with ideas about achieving social change. It covers a wide range of subjects, from microfinance and green businesses to social networks and human rights. SSIR's aim is both to inform and to inspire leaders of social change.

Background[edit]

Founding[edit]

SSIR was launched in Spring 2003 by the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB). Initially published through the GSB’s Center for Social Innovation, the magazine was written to draw readers from the ranks of nonprofit executives, philanthropists, public policy makers, concerned business leaders, consultants, academics, and students.[4] According to the first managing editor of SSIR, "A central feature of our definition of social innovation is that we focus on social needs and problems, rather than sectors. As a result, the Review encompasses a broad range of issues ranging from nonprofit management and corporate social responsibility to philanthropy and public policy."

Present Day[edit]

In 2010, the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society acquired SSIR.[5] Currently, SSIR is available in over 400 retail locations in the U.S. and Canada.[6] The journal is complemented by a website, blog, conferences, webinars and podcasts.
