Employment Social Enterprise 101 12:00 pm
Employment Social Enterprise 101 @ Online
Aug 13 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
This webinar will provide you with an overview of employment social enterprises – innovative businesses that create training and employment opportunities for people facing barriers to employment, such as people with disabilities, newcomers, and people with mental illness. The time is right for employment social enterprise development. Globally, and across Canada, employment social enterprises (ESEs) have demonstrated strong outcomes for their employees. Based on this success, and on persistent employment barriers for many people in Peel, Toronto and York Region, there is demand for additional jobs. Additionally, based on growth in ‘social purchasing’ behavior, there is increasing demand for the products and services created by ESEs. The webinar will feature: An overview of employment social enterprises, including: defining characteristics, key success factors, and outcomes A scan of the employment social enterprise ‘development pathway’ A list of supports available to you through Toronto Enterprise Fund should you be interested in launching an employment social enterprise (e.g. grants, coaching, resources) A Q&A session with a representative of the Toronto Enterprise Fund, Canada’s leading supporter of employment social enterprises The webinar is well-suited to emerging social entrepreneurs with an interest in employment inclusion, and the directors or managers of non-profit organizations or charities that run (or are interested in running) employment programs. The webinar will be hosted in English. This webinar is hosted by the Toronto Enterprise Fund.
