Tackling Poverty, Transforming Communities

Thursday 20th of October 2016

Ethical Enterprise Conference 2016

The 2016 Ethical Enterprise Conference

Tackling Poverty, Transforming Communities – explores the power of enterprise to tackle growing inequality in Australia and abroad.

From social enterprise to B-Corps, Shared Value to impact investing, the business of ‘doing good’ is on the rise. What can be done to ensure this trend become ‘the new normal’, harnessing the engine of enterprise to help address an ever-growing, seemingly insurmountable number of social challenges our world faces?

Held for the first time to coincide with Anti Poverty Week, the 20th of October 2016 the annual Ethical Enterprise Conference will unify change makers, embrace the courage of purpose driven organisations, and seek to push boundaries to shift business culture and encourage innovation and collaboration. As with previous conferences, the day brings together influential business and community leaders, organisations and businesses that are, or aspiring too, tackle poverty and transform their communities for the better.
