Should organisations shift their preference for valuing their worth financially to valuing their social impact as a priority?
- If so, who is responsible for driving the change? The CEO? Chief Financial Officer? The Board?
- Should it be a top-down change or a bottom-up push from the people doing the social impact measurement?
Not frightened to challenge the status quo, our panellists will be calling for a change in how organisations value their worth.
This event is jointly organised by the Social Impact Measurement Network of Australia (SIMNA) and Centre for Social Impact at UWA as part of the Social Impact Festival.
Where: Ernst & Young Lecture Theatre, UWA Business School, 39 Fairway, Crawley, WA 6009
