VBSR and Marlboro College Grad School are teaming up again!
Most people agree that a healthy civil society is made up of three distinct sectors: the public sector, the private sector and the civil sector. Driven by the need for radical social change, the emergence of social enterprise has brought about new legal structures, creative partnerships and potent policies that blur the lines between these sectors and change how change can happen. As more social enterprises arise locally and globally, what do we gain and what do we risk? Does the disruptive nature of social enterprise indicate systemic evolution, creative destruction, or simply a new method for doing business?
- Contemplate advantages/disadvantages of different structures and certifications to accomplish social mission in business
- Examine the role of business in making social change and achieving sustainability
- Explore whether society should devise other mechanisms to achieve social mission in business
