Event description

Description

How do organisastions balance the expectations of their suppporters & consumers for robust social impact reporting against the resources available?

For the social enterprise and not-for-profit sector, finding this balance can be a difficult process, as time, financial and human resources are often stretched.

How can organisations report and measure their social impact more efficiently?

Should there be standardisation of what is measured?

Should we demand measurement of social impact at all, and is there hypocrisy in the differing expectations we have of corporations and small NFP's?

Join Pollinate Energy as we explore these questions and more with our esteemed guests;

This event is being held on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people, a member of Kulin nation, who are original custodians of the land upon which we meet. Their land was never ceded and a treaty never signed, and we pay our respects to the elders of the Wurundjeri, from past, present and future generations.
