    Event Description:
    Join us for the fourth session of our 13th Annual Community Partnership Forum Speaker Series - Moving Forward with Purpose: Building a Better & Stronger Post-Covid DMV

    Pursuing Social Purpose and Profit:  How Social Enterprises Already Benefit Our Region – And How They Can Do More:  Join our expert panelists for a discussion of how hybrid, double-bottom-line social enterprises that seek to both “do good” and “make money” are enhancing our region and what we can do to support their further development.  We will hear from a local social entrepreneur, an expert on the law regarding social enterprise, and an international advocate for this new class of “for-benefit organizations” that mix social purpose and profit.  Come learn about what the emerging fourth sector may mean for you, your organization, and the quality of life in the DMV and our country, and how we can work together to advance this important movement.
