Business and Government Members

ST ESSENTIALS WORKSHOP

Social Traders will deliver a 2-hour workshop to outline the impact that social enterprise can have on our business, how to go about engaging them and how Social Traders can make it easier.

Are you fully aware of the social impact that your spend, hire, purchase or procurement can have? Do you know who Social Traders are and what they can do for your business?

By adopting a more purposeful social procurement approach to your purchasing decisions at any scale, you can create positive change in the lives of people that face disadvantage – including recently arrived migrants and refugees, disengaged youth, people with a disability or long term unemployed people. Increasingly, customers and competitors are becoming more sophisticated in requiring and delivering social outcomes through procurement.

Buying from Social Enterprise represents the greatest untapped potential in generating positive, sustainable social impact in Australia and we all have a role to play in this. As members of Social Traders, we have access to services that connect us to social enterprises.

Pass on to anyone in your organisation that may be interested.
