Social Enterprise Masterclass: Understanding the Bigger Picture

The School of Business and Economics would like to invite you to attend a networking event at Loughborough University.

The theme is what does ‘corporate social responsibility’ (CSR) actually mean in both the private and the not-for-profit sector? How do businesses understand and fulfil their social responsibilities and what roles do, and should, social enterprises play to support and contribute to the CSR remit?

This seminar investigates these questions and examines how best to exploit the roles and relationships within and between the third sector and corporations to ensure that long-term sustainable environmental and social impacts arise from social investment. 

Speakers from Business in the Community, Loughborough Students Union Community Action and Loughborough University will provide insights and spurs for a discussion on how to fully understand and exploit the positives of social responsibility for all those involved.

The keynote speaker, Anthony Wallis has worked for 11 years as a Corporate Adviser for Business in the Community and currently manages the membership relationships with a number of universities in the north of England. He specialises in corporate social responsibility and community engagement.

For those working in the third sector this event is an ideal forum for discussion and networking and we do hope you can join us.
