Social Venturers is launching a series of Fireside Chats to discuss what makes ecosystem builders effective. Every two weeks from September 10th until December 3rd, they are hosting peer-to-peer knowledge sharing sessions and you are invited!
#2 Foster Inclusive Conversations (September 24, 2020, 2. p.m. EST)
In order to move knowledge and resources from the people who have them to the (social) entrepreneurs who need them, we need to create conversations and interactions. In a world that has mostly shifted online, how can we be intentional about fostering inclusive conversations?
Join Social Venturers on September 24th, 2020, at 2. Pm EST for a one-hour Fireside Chat about Ecosystem Building principle #2: Foster Inclusive Conversations
Format: Fireside Chats
Fireside Chats are peer-to-peer knowledge sharing sessions with entrepreneurial ecosystem builders passionate about leveraging entrepreneurship in their communities as a force for good. We respect each other’s views, we speak from our own experience and we are comfortable saying “I don’t know!”
Rather than best practices, we are hoping to elicit:
- Stories from the field with a focus on lessons learned
- Proven practices: What has worked for you, what hasn’t? What will you try next?
- Tools and resources: Which tools do you rely on to do your work well? Which resources do you confidently recommend to your peers?
- Questions: What do YOU want to know more about? Which questions are worth diving deeper into?
Each Fireside Chat will become a blogpost in Social Venturers LEARN section with a focus on stories from the field, proven practices, tools & resources, and remaining questions.
