MRSB Group is excited to share an event being hosted by the Institute of Corporate Directors entitled “Navigating the Social Economy” on February 5th, 5:30 – 7:30 PM at Upstreet Craft Brewing in Charlottetown. This event will feature a keynote by Taraq Hadhad of Peace by Chocolate and a panel discussion with representatives from the PEI Reach Foundation, Mi’kmaq Printing and Design and Upstreet Brewing Company. Discussion will take place around benefits and challenges to running a social enterprise, engaging in social finance strategies and generally generating wealth and doing good simultaneously. The Institute for Corporate Directors is a director-focused organization, so much of the discussion will be geared towards governance topics. Panel discussion will explore how leadersin the non-profit, public and for-profit sector can maximize community benefit through business activities, measure impact and navigate potential tensions between profit-driven and social good objectives.
