Meet other social impact organisations to explore the topic of alternative leadership models for your social enterprise.

About this Event
Workers Co-op, Sociocracy, Horizontal Leadership, Membership led, Boards, Community Interest…

Many social enterprises are starting to explore different models of governance and ways of working.

Join us to share experiences (good and bad) about alternative ways of leading and managing, decision making, governance and accountability.

Whatever your leadership model, we are interested in hearing about working practices that help or get in the way of effective cooperative working. What would help your social enterprise function better?

Who is it for?

This informal ‘social’ will bring together individuals and organisations interested in exploring alternative forms of leadership and governance.

The speakers

Henry Owen – CAG Oxfordshire

CAG consists of over 85 groups across Oxfordshire who are at the forefront of community led climate change action tackling issues including waste, transport, food, energy, biodiversity and social justice.

Started in 2001, the network is the largest of its kind in the UK, running over 2,000 events per year, attended by around 80,000 local residents and contributing over 20,000 volunteer hours to the county.

Henry has experience working with alternative leadership models in his work at CAG, as well as with Broken Spoke Bike Co-op, Transition Network, and Dragonfly Housing Co-op. Between these settings they use a range of self-management, sociocratic, and consensus-based approaches to decision-making.Find out more at cagoxfordshire.org.uk
