Winter 2018     News from Social Impact Studios

Moving to Action

Ennis Carter, Director
Anyone who knows me knows how much I love a good Action Plan. The art of planning appeals to both the organizer and the designer in me. I love taking time to envision big dreams, think about the paths to achieving them, and getting into the details that will translate concepts into reality.

Each year, at Social Impact Studios, we create our own annual Action Plan. This year, we took a very different approach. We embarked on a 3-year plan developed last fall that will take us all the way through 2020. In our 22 years as a social enterprise, we’ve never planned on such a long timeline.

We believe the next 3 years is a critical time to fully grow our Public Image Works method to help a movement of positive change succeed. As people committed to creating a healthy, happy and peaceful world for everyone, we don’t have a minute to waste. We must clearly and strongly communicate our vision and we must promote the real-life ways that big ideas can be manifested right away.

Read the full story here about our new 3-year plan to help our movement build toward 2020, “incubator” plans for growing "The Public Image Workshop," and the big news about our Studios move in April.

Some Phila Eagles Trivia

DID YOU KNOW? This year's Super Bowl champs are named after the New Deal "National Recovery Act" Blue Eagle? It's true! When owners Bert Bell and Lud Wray bought the Frankford Yellow Jackets in 1933, they named their team the Philadelphia Eagles after the symbol of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal! Read about this and more fun stuff on the site.
