Social Innovation: Doing good better
Allyson Hewitt, Senior Fellow for social innovation at the highly successful MaRS Discovery District in Canada will lead a public talk on the role social innovation plays in growing South Australia’s economy.
According to the ABS, the social economy is the fastest growing sector of South Australia’s economy. Allyson will discuss how using different business models, such as social enterprises, co-operatives, mutuals, and for-benefit-corporations (or BCorps) can not only create new jobs but also do good at the same time.
Allyson Hewitt’s talk will follow three weeks of intense engagement with individuals and organisations across private, public and non-government sectors. Allyson is the primary Thinker in Residence for the Don Dunstan Foundation’s Social Capital Residencies.
Event costs are $11.31 for members/concession/student and $19.49 for all other.
