Putting People and the Planet First: Models for Social Enterprises
Feb 28 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Take part in a workshop where you will develop a sustainable business strategy that creates value for people and planet.

 

You will examine the ecosystems and identify potential systems change. You’ll learn how social enterprises expand the thinking beyond a single bottom line. We will start with the lexicon and quickly move into real examples that will change your perspective on what’s possible. Bring your ideas for a social enterprise and we’ll see if they can be turned into a sustainable business with social impact.​

 

When: Thursday, February 28th, from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Location: University of Toronto Mississauga campus. Exact room location TBD

Facilitators: Cindy Ross Pedersen, Executive Director, The Agency, a hub for social innovation at U of T, theagencyuoft.ca

 

If you have any questions about this workshop, please contact Chris Kim, Entrepreneurship Librarian, csy.kim@utoronto.ca, or Catherine Fournier Boulianne, Institute for Management & Innovation Liaison Librarian at Mississauga campus, catherine.fournierboulianne@utoronto.ca
