Event description

Description

Launchpad Work is pleased to announce the third and final event in its public speaking series: Social Enterprise in Auckland: The Future.

At this event we turn our focus to the future of Auckland and ask what role Social Enterprise can play in shaping it. We will hear from a panel with a wealth of experience across sectors and industries about some of the social issues Auckland is facing and how they are working to address these and create a positive future for all Aucklanders to enjoy.

The panel includes:

  • Gael Surgenor: Director of The Southern Initiative, an initiative which champions, stimulates and enables social and community innovation in South Auckland.
  • Janette Searle: Founder of Take My Hands and YESS, and participant in Launchpad Work.
  • Shelley Katae: General Manager of Strategy and Operations at Tamaki Regeneration.
  • Louise Aitken: General Manager of the Ākina Foundation, and previous Programmes Manager of Global Sustainability & Social Responsibility at Fonterra.

These free events are a great opportunity for you to understand more about the social enterprise sector in New Zealand and it’s potential, as well as meet other people who are active in, and passionate about, this sector.

Please RSVP by Tuesday August 15.
