Event description

Description

Are you interested in seeing Boards in Scotland become more diverse?

Are you eager to put yourself forward for a voluntary role that can really make a difference?

As Scotland works towards becoming a fairer and more inclusive society, social enterprises are increasingly becoming the business model of choice. Glasgow is a leading light in this exciting sector with more than 700 social enterprises with a combined net worth of £1.6billion.

  • 84% of social enterprises in Glasgow pay at least the Scottish Living Wage

  • 61% are led by women

  • Social enterprises generate income but primarily exist to achieve social or environmental aims

We are delighted to invite you to be part of an special event showcasing some of Glasgow's most interesting social enterprises and giving you the opportunity to find out more about joining their boards*.

This engaging and interactive event will give you a firsthand opportunity to hear from a number of social enterprises across the city to see for yourself how joining their board can align with your goals and ambitions.

6.30pm - Arrrival and Canapes

7pm - Welcome and Introductions
