Why and How Should Social Entrepreneurs Engage with Policymakers?

Impact Hub Global Retreat 2021

We are at a momentous crossroads in our world. As societies adapt to the post-Covid-19 world and economies begin to rebuild, governments are more determined to take action on the key issues of our time — climate change and inequality.

Social enterprises are key to accelerating the transition to a more just and sustainable world but often fail to understand and be understood by policymakers.

For social enterprises work to become mainstream and get the support it needs, we need to engage in policy initiatives. In this LIVE with Impact Hub session, we will talk about why and how to do this and share our learnings with the Better Entrepreneurship Policy Tool led by the OECD & the EU, as well as from the prominent academic efforts led by Ute Stephan, Professor at King’s College London. Gabriela Gandel, Impact Hub Network Board Director, will host this engaging conversation.

The time to Act is Now. The Way to Act is Together!
