Program Description: Are social enterprises radically different entities when it comes to working with and alongside them to address some of society’s most pressing challenges, such as poverty, hunger, and climate change? What lessons can be learned from these experiences that support the growth of this sector and our own professional development? Join us for an in-depth exploration of how social enterprises operate and the challenges they face in mobilizing resources and demonstrating a successful change model that can be scaled up and replicated. This interactive session will feature a case study of an OD consulting process involving an international social enterprise and will draw upon participants’ experiences to generate lessons learned that can be applied within the social change and other sectors.
