Ethical Marketing

July 19, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

If your inspiration for creating a social enterprise is to address issues in our society & environment, then surely ethics are important too

You’re trying to do the right thing in the sourcing, production, packaging, and operations, but you may be worried that it’s not perfect. With that in mind, how do you market the critical impact you’re making without greenwashing or social washing? You want to feel good about what you’re doing, and definitely don’t want to be called out for being contradictory!

In this workshop by Julianna Van Adrichem, we’ll delve into how to spot greenwashing and social washing, and what it takes to promote your social enterprise authentically and ethically. You’ll learn ways to market your social enterprise effectively without feeling gross! There will be time to reflect on your marketing and to discuss it with others in breakout rooms. There will also be time for questions.
