2023 Projects for Progress Awards

What’s your big idea? What concrete initiative do you think would make a real difference in the city of Philadelphia in one of the following ways?

- Eradicating or reducing systemic racism
- Achieving educational equity
- Reducing health disparities based on race, gender, sexual orientation, and/or social determinants of health

Look to your left and to your right and you will find potential student, faculty, and staff collaborators with great ideas and, most importantly, a range of perspectives, interests, and expertise to contribute to your team.
