The Don Dunstan Foundation second Social Capital Residencies Showcase was an opportunity to hear about successful initiatives by our partnering organisations and to meet others working in the purpose economy.
Following an economic briefing, there was a series of rapid fire presentations from local initiatives, start-ups, established businesses and others all working on creating jobs in the purpose economy.
Our guests then heard from our international key-note speaker, Allyson Hewitt, Thinker in Residence. She reflected on her first visit and spoke about her recommendations.
Allyson Hewitt leads the social innovation programs at MaRS Discovery District in Toronto, Canada. Allyson has assisted hundreds of social ventures to become economically sustainable and increase their social impact, has initiated and implemented public policy to support social enterprise and has developed a range of social innovation programs at MaRS.
