POSTPONED! Women Entrepreneurs with Purpose

21 March @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm



We regret that this event has been postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. 

Save the date for 9 May. 

Join us and follow us on Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn for updates on the new booking link. 

One Roof and All Things Equal are very excited to be collaborating for the first time ever to bring this event to women building impact driven business and social enterprises. 

The rise of social impact businesses has been gaining significant traction in recent years. Entrepreneurs are wanting to embed impact into their business models, consumers are demanding it and major companies are now required to report on their environmental, social and corporate governance data. Women tend to start businesses because they see or experience a problem, they want to have a positive impact and they are passionate about a cause. With the right tools, networks and support women can build businesses that achieve both financial success and a strong positive impact.

Women in business are the catalyst for positive global change.

Join us for a panel discussion followed by breakout intimate conversations supporting you on your own journey of social entrepreneurship. Our panellists will share: 

  • The catalyst for starting their impact businesses
  • How they achieve both profit and impact
  • Mistakes they have made, lessons learnt and things to be mindful of when building businesses of impact
  • Why now is the best time to lead an impact business
  • The current trends of impact and social entrepreneurship
  • What the future holds for each of their impact businesses
