With mounting pressure to do more with less, non-profit leaders are increasingly being challenged to diversify their revenue streams through the creation of social enterprise ventures. Earned-income opportunities have the potential to support complex social, economic and environmental objectives while also generating profit to support operational sustainability. Are you an Executive Director or part of a Board of Directors who is considering what it would take to develop and/or operate a social enterprise for your non-profit or charitable organization? If yes, then this workshop is suited for you.
The content of this workshop is designed to evolve from a basic level of organizational readiness. In other words, we assume that your non-profit has already developed its capacity to effectively deliver your existing programs and services. The ultimate goal is to build a bespoke toolkit to support your Board as you try and navigate the idea of social enterprise. You can expect to take away a workbook compiled with various resources as well as the following learning outcomes:
Participating organizations are required to send at least two people to this session, comprised of one senior staff person and one board member. Additional participants from the same organization are welcomed.
The Ottawa Centre for Social Enterprise Development (CSED) is a not for profit organization that advances businesses and organizations, whose primary objective is to drive systemic social change. We believe in the power of the social enterprise sector, and its ability to make the world a better place.
