Find out about social enterprises, social institutions, and social impact in this online workshop.
In this workshop Scholars will find out about the structures and function of social organisations, and the differences between social enterprises, charities, not-for-profits and NGOs.
Scholars will also be introduced to social impact concepts and will be able to plot social organisations that link to their own research. Scholars will be able to practise mapping their own impact goals to objectives and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
This will be a useful workshop for any researcher thinking about the structures that create and influence social impact in their research and beyond, or for anyone considering starting a socially-minded enterprise in the future!
This workshop is part of the CSC’s Development Training Programme for the 2020-21 academic year.
CSC workshops focus on professional and practical skills and are designed to be interactive, with small groups of Scholars and Fellows taking part in each event.
