Challenge your mindset!
Is making a positive impact and increasing responsibility and sustainability what you are interested in? You can help a large company become more responsible by working in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) – or you can really get involved in doing good by working for a Social Enterprise (SE).

You wonder which one is more social, does more good or is more important?

The Green Office VU and the social entrepreneurship network ‘makesense’ invite you to come over to Green Office VU on the 15th of May at 17:30, for a Panel Discussion & Drinks about connecting Social Enterprising and Corporate Social Responsibility.

Instead of focusing on differences between CSR and SE, in this event we want to show what connects both: the same aim! Together we want to explore perspectives and ideas on how connecting CSR and SE is possible and how connecting creates more responsibility.

Take the chance to connect with our speakers of very diverse industries. They will explain how they create possibilities to take SE and CSR further and even more important: how this helps to increase the positive impact! Join our discussion around “Why Corporate Social Responsibility and Social Enterprising share the same aim – and how connecting creates more responsibility?” - helping you to find your own way in making a positive impact!
