Social Enterprise UK (SEUK), one of the leading social sector organisations, has arranged a 2-day digital summit to take place from the 25-26 of November. As Careers4Change mentioned last week, amongst the upheaval, we’ve seen the social enterprise sector respond to the pandemic and rise to its challenges in inspiring ways. This conference will allow for the celebration of the main achievements of the year and discussions about the visions and hopes for 2021 as we #buildbackbetter from Covid-19.

SEUK will use an interactive platform to provoke thought-provoking debates and discussions, and encourage networking and the opportunity to ask questions to the world-class line up of speakers. Also, The 2020 Roll of Honour will recognise particular individuals playing a vital role within the social enterprise movement. You can nominate someone who has inspired you by tagging them on social media using #SocEntFutures.
