With grateful thanks to the Clash for their song the Magnificent Dance we come to understand that the Social Entrepreneur is finally leaving their organisation after many years of satisfying work. In short are they leaving well and living well? The webinar focusses on the quality of life balance for the Social Entrepreneur as they continue their journey, indeed, as the dance comes to a conclusion. Speakers to be announced.
The Elders Council for Social Entrepreneurs
The Elders Council for Social Entrepreneurs is building a global network of social entrepreneurs so that elder members can support one another and also share their wisdom across the social entrepreneurship ecosystem.
Membership is open to all social entrepreneurs over the age of 55. Any social entrepreneur under 55 can become an associate member. For the Elders Council to become a non-profit organisation, charity status has been applied for.
The Elders Council is working on two main themes which will be based on a range of expertise accumulated through the years:
- To support social entrepreneurs who are over 55: by working on systems of mutual support and solidarity.
- To support the wider community of social entrepreneurs: To focus the wisdom of the elders for the benefit of the wider community of social entrepreneurs, offering whatever support is needed. The support could include mentoring, advice on boards, transition and other critical challenges.
