In building a more inclusive economy how can we combine business success with social value?
We are delighted to invite you to the UK launch of our research with MONDRAGON, the world's largest industrial co-operative group.
This event is being co-hosted with Co-operatives UK.
Founded in the Basque Country, the MONDRAGON Corporation has become a highly successful global business, owned and governed by its worker-members, with social benefit at its core. Our research tells their story and explores how they have developed as a social innovation ecosystem. This has important implications for how businesses can both be competitive in the marketplace and generate social value.
The event will be chaired by Randeep Ramesh, Chief Leader Writer of the Guardian, and includes a presentation of the research findings from both MONDRAGON representatives and the Young Foundation, and guest speakers including Ed Mayo, Secretary General of Co-operatives UK. This will be followed by a discussion on the key learnings for UK and international policy and practice.
