Alternative Leadership Models: Networking for Social Enterprises
Meet other social impact organisations to explore the topic of alternative leadership models for your social enterprise.
Workers Co-op, Sociocracy, Horizontal Leadership, Membership led, Boards, Community Interest…
Many social enterprises are starting to explore different models of governance and ways of working.
Join us to share experiences (good and bad) about alternative ways of leading and managing, decision making, governance and accountability.
Whatever your leadership model, we are interested in hearing about working practices that help or get in the way of effective cooperative working. What would help your social enterprise function better?
Who is it for?
This informal ‘social’ will bring together individuals and organisations interested in exploring alternative forms of leadership and governance.
