Get Social Dublin! – Episode 2

Linda Blake, ASPIRE Productions & Miriam Spollen, Connections Arts Centre

In our second podcast, we are chatting to social enterprises with social missions focused on Diversity & Inclusion and why it matters? It’s essentially about empowering people by respecting and appreciating what makes them different, without making them feel different. We ask if community building through allyship from all stakeholders has the potential to bring about industry-wide, socially responsible change. Where seeing and thinking differently not only enhances value but enables more effective engagement by corporates and the general public, when supporting social enterprises to achieve their social mission and their ability to reinvest their profits back into the business.
