Monthly Ethical Networking Events

moral fairground networking

A business networking event for leaders and entrepreneurs to connect, collaborate and discuss their ethical business practices.

The ethical network event series is a unique opportunity to form business relationships with like-minded leaders and new ethical entrepreneurs. Each event is an educational and networking event, an opportunity to come together in a relaxed environment to meet and network with other like-minded businesses and individuals. It is a chance to celebrate the skills, passion and diversity of the ethical business network and recognise the achievements of the business leaders who are driving social and ethical business movement and the social economy. The event creates networking opportunities for Ethical SMEs. We embrace this business community through networking, professional development and coaching opportunities in an intimate and informative environment.

For most businesses, particularly small to medium enterprise, workplace spending is a means to an end. A necessary cost of doing business. But what if there was a way to turn your everyday expenses into a source of impact, that aligns with your values and supports your purpose?

Matt Perfect from Impact Spender and Stephanie Roache from Australia Post will lead an intimate ‘fireside chat’ around the role of workplace spending in ethical enterprise. You will learn:
• What Impact Spending is and why it matters to both big and small business
• How Australia Post leverages it’s spend with diverse suppliers to create social impact and is driving collective action in three areas: Digital Inclusion, Diversity and Social Inclusion, and Recycling and Re-use.
• Practical ways you can use spending to grow your business and your impact
