Social enterprise has taken off as a new formula for success. Whether subsidized or self-funding, these initiatives combine business methods with a drive to better the world. Blending financial goals with your mission for social, cultural or environmental impact is one of the most effective ways your organization can work towards financial stability while still feeling connected to your larger purpose.
Join us for this two hour overview of what social enterprise is (and isn’t), how it can help your organization achieve financial stability, and how to get one off the ground.
Learning objectives include:
- Understanding what social enterprise is and isn’t
- Awareness of various social enterprise models
- Thinking about your organizations readiness
Note: This workshop is designed for organizations and individuals in Manitoba.

POSITION PURPOSE AND SUMMARY
Guided by the vision, mission and values of the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization of Manitoba Inc. (IRCOM), the Child Care Assistant:
The West Central Women’s Resource Centre (WCWRC) provides services and programming to women and families in the West Central neighbourhood of Winnipeg. WCWRC is women centered and practices empowerment, inclusion, harm reduction, multi-level, and community economic development philosophies to support women experiencing poverty, homelessness, mental illness, violence, substance use or participating in sex work.
Community-led solutions lead to transformative social change and co-ops put the power to shape our realities and decide our own futures back into people's hands. Community organizer and human rights advocate Josephine Grey of St. James Town Community Co-op joins us to explore impact co-op models that meet community needs.
The workshop will be a participatory, question-and-answer session and we encourage attendees to come with their questions for Josephine on how to create impactful co-op models that truly meet community needs.
Freedom Dreams Co-operative Education Program is an online and place-based workshop series that shares knowledge about co-operatives and the solidarity economy from a Black, Indigenous and Person of Colour (BIPOC) perspective. The "Transformation on Our Own Terms" series explores the complex histories of co-operatives often left out of the examples and conversations in the mainstream co-operative rhetoric here in Canada, with cultural significance in South and Central America, Asia and Southeast Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and throughout the Black Diaspora.
As we ‘build back better’ in a post-COVID world, this webinar series demonstrates not only what’s possible but what’s necessary in order for BIPOC communities to take their power into their own hands regarding food sovereignty, social justice, economic self-determination and more.
