SESW Podcast - Episode #2: "Shift to the Middle"

SESW PODCAST SERIES CONTINUES WITH EPISODE #2 -
SHIFT TO THE MIDDLE

Here at SESW, we use the idiom “Shift to the Middle” as a way to understand social enterprise not as a strict definition but as a central position along a spectrum bookended by traditional market- and mission-driven businesses and organizations:

In our second podcast, we explore this concept by looking at examples of ‘Shifting to the Middle’ in our region, from both sides of the spectrum:

  • The Triple-Bottom Line of a For-Profit Co-operative Business: David Thuss, Director & Worker-Owner at London Brewing Co-operative

  • Nonprofit Organization Exploring Social Enterprise: Brendon Nicholson, Program Director, The Southridge Jam Company

  • The United Nation Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), as a shared language for all sectors and communities to articulate purpose and work toward generating positive impact: Dawit Eshetu, representing Social Enterprise Niagara

Foreword by Julie Forrester, Social Enterprise Coach, Pillar Nonprofit Network.
