Social Entrepreneurship : Core Values There's plenty of buzz in the field of social entrepreneurship on creating value, achieving impact, and leveraging scale. Less attention is focused on taking a solid stand on the bedrock of defined and practiced core values yet a growing body of research evidence makes a definitive case that the consistent practice of core values is a primary driver of enterprise outcomes. Many social entrepreneurs struggle to identify, define, and integrate core values into their enterprise design and organisational cultures. In the press of competing issues, core values are unfortunately often assumed and therefore overlooked. This seminar will provide a practical framework and process to identify, analyze, define, and apply core values in social enterprise – informed by reflection on personal life experience.
