On March 25, 2010, the Center for Social Value Creation hosted the 2nd annual Social Enterprise Symposium, a student-run program designed to introduce new approaches for making impactful, lasting social change around the world using market-based approaches. The event brought together private, public and nonprofit practitioners who are crossing traditional barriers to enable social and environmental change. Attendees selected from multiple plenary sessions that ranged from topics in social media to sustainability to financing social change. Read summaries of the sessions.
The event culminated in a networking fair and reception. Check out the terrific lineup of organizations that attended the fair.
