Big Ideas, Big Impact: Forbes Launches List of Top Social Entrepreneurs

gold 3D star

Forbes recently added to its famous list of lists, and released the Impact 30: a list of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs. It is the first time the flagship publication has ever assembled such a list and its creation points to the growing popularity of social innovation in business and culture. The list is a compilation of impressive people who have set about fixing the problems they saw in the world.

It was especially exciting to see that Jill Vialet, CEO and Founder of Playworks, and Rebecca Onie, Co-Founder and CEO of Health Leads, were included in the Impact 30. We have worked with both of these amazing women as they have led their organizations to the national level. We are continually inspired by what they are accomplishing in their efforts to improve the lives of families and children across the country. This recognition is well deserved.

Playworks is a national nonprofit organization that supports learning by providing safe, healthy and inclusive play and physical activity to schools at recess and throughout the entire school day. Learn more.

Health Leads mobilizes undergraduate volunteers, in partnership with providers in urban clinics, to connect low-income patients with the basic resources — such as food, housing, and heating assistance — that they need to be healthy. Learn more.
