Moving from pilot to practice: embedding social procurement in your organisation
Open only to business and government members, this forum will explore a range of examples to highlight how organisations are embedding social procurement into systems and therefore, regular practice.
Pilots and initiatives are an essential part of the social procurement journey, but they require additional effort and resourcing. When social procurement is systematically addressed, the impact is far greater for the effort involved. This is an opportunity to learn about how others have made a variety of simple as well as complex systematic changes and to share your own progress amongst the network.
9:30 – 10:30am: SOCIAL ENTERPRISE FORUM
Open only to #STcertified social enterprises. This session will cover social enterprise procurement updates and informal social enterprise networking
10:30 – 11am: MORNING TEA
11 – 12:15pm: STRUCTURED NETWORKING
Each Social Traders business/government member will outline their social procurement approach, pipeline and process with a small gathering of social enterprises to facilitate an intimate discussion. This will be repeated several times and social enterprises will have the opportunity to rotate around to different business/government members and ask questions.
If you are a certified social enterprise or a business and government member, please use the Portal to register.
