Social Enterprise Regional Showcase: Bendigo

18 August 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Text: Social Enterprise Regional Showcase Bendigo Friday 18 August 2023 Logo: Social Traders

Social enterprise showcase – bringing together social enterprises, business and governments located in the Bendigo Region.

Did you know more than 120 business and government organisations have caught on and are already leading the charge in business for good?

Continuing our 2023 series of regional showcases, we are here to celebrate all those who play a part in the shift to #businessforgood.  You will hear from trailblazing local social enterprises, and from members of the business and government community who are leading the charge in unlocking social impact through procurement.

Organisations across Australia are exploring innovative new approaches to achieving social objectives through social procurement. Buying from a social enterprise is one of the most effective ways of breaking the cycle of disadvantage and strengthening regional Australian communities.

Through open discussion and a facilitated Q&A we will explore the benefits and challenges of social procurement and explore local opportunities including the Victoria 2026 Commonwealth Games.

Join our community of gamechangers, who are making a more inclusive and equitable Australia by making buying from social enterprise the norm.

Featured topics include:

  • How social enterprise is one of the most impactful ways to do business
  • Opportunities for regional social enterprises through the Commonwealth Games
  • Discuss the challenges in social procurement with like-minded professionals.
  • Hear the lived experiences of our social enterprise guest speakers.
  • Unpack why businesses and governments are adopting social procurement, and what policy settings influence the Australian context.
  • Find out the latest social procurement impact statistics and how deliberate purchasing decisions can make a positive impact on communities
