Stampede at Leeds
Last month, we were privileged to participate in Stampede, the first annual weeklong event on “values in driving business,” hosted by the University of Colorado’s Center for Education on Social Responsibility. It was a great event. Below is a snippet about the event, but you can read a full recap here.
Even the heavy snow couldn’t bring down the energy as students, professionals and community members came together on Monday to discuss social enterprise and social impact. The day featured a lunch with Jensine Larsen, founder of World Pulse, an award-winning organization that uses media and empowerment training to give a voice to women change leaders from 190 countries. In addition, Social Impact day featured a Social Enterprise panel focused on defining the ‘new normal’ for business in the 21st century, hosted by Restorative Leadership Institute founder, Seana Steffen. Following the panel, participants in an exciting Marketplace of Ideas gathered in an open space forum with local high-impact social enterprises, brainstorming new strategies to evolve their impact.
