    Dear colleagues,


    The Rutgers Institute for Corporate Social Innovation (RICSI) is proud to host the Questions & Unanswers About Social Innovation (QUASI) Seminar Series. We hope you will join us! All are welcome, so please sign up NOW, and help us to spread the word.


    Framed as debates, QUASI seminars are designed to help scholars develop richer and more refined research questions about social innovation. QUASI seminars do not provide answers but instead identify conditions, contingencies, conundrums, and paradoxes that merit further research, in hopes that scholars will pursue these refined lines of inquiry. 


    Each monthly seminar lasts one hour, followed by an optional 30 minutes of open or small group discussion. Sessions are hosted on Zoom and, subject to presenter approval, recorded and made available upon request.


    To participate, please register here. Registration will remain open until the morning of the session, and the link will be sent via email prior to the session start time. Contact RICSI's Administrative Assistant, Deborah Flamengo (dflameng@business.rutgers.edu), or RICSI's Academic Director, Mike Barnett (mbarnett@business.rutgers.edu) with any questions.


    Our next, and first, session is going to be a good one, so sign up now!
