Social enterprise is ahead of the curve with business innovation locked into creating a just, inclusive and sustainable future.

Now is the time for social enterprise to consolidate our strength and lead the charge to achieving SDGs by 2030.

The SDGs provide common frames for us to identify, communicate and measure our impact.

This third in a series of virtual events will explore SDG 8 Decent Work and Inclusive Economies.

This virtul event is shared through the Alliance of Social Enterprise Networks Australia (ASENA) and welcomes social enterprise from across the country to join the conversation circle.
