How can we use social enterprise to improve our communities and the world?
In a world dominated by corporate interests, we find ourselves in the middle of a rising tide of support for reinvesting spending into local and ethical business models. People not only want to know how their products are made, but the who, what, and where of them as well. Consumers are increasingly discerning about where and how to spend there money. Putting the mission of the organization on equal footing with the profit margin signals to all stakeholders that leadership is fully committed. In our upcoming speaker panel series, we seek to understand how companies are operating in the ever evolving landscape of social enterprise.
What are some current examples of businesses doing more than just business as usual?
