We are excited to welcome you to the first virtual SECON! In a time marked by global crisis, we face the urgent challenge to address both the pandemic and an array of deepening social and economic issues. However, this time also brings an opportunity to reset the role that social enterprise will play in shaping the future. During SECON 2021, we will explore the space between people, decision makers, and the diverse sources of social innovation, revisiting the questions of whom social enterprise is for, what role it can play, and why. As we continue in and emerge from the pandemic, how will we define social enterprise to address the challenges of the decade ahead?
