ECSB offers a Professional Development Workshop “Assessing Multiple-enterprise Social Impacts and Stakeholder Values: The Benefits of a Human Capabilities Lens for Social Entrepreneurship” on 6 December 2022 at 4:00-6:30 pm (CET) online.

In this 2.5 hour collaborative workshop, participants are introduced to the Human Capabilities Approach (HCA) as a multidimensional, people-centered framework for social impact negotiation and assessment. As an entrepreneurial tool, HCA provides a fertile ground for coordination among diverse sets of stakeholder groups with varied values and priorities in settings of social entrepreneurship. Workshop participants are given opportunities to use the HCA framework to shift their entrepreneurial awareness beyond isolated impacts towards the broader set of multi-faceted (and, ideally, socially-sustainable) impacts of an enterprise.  The HCA framework is also relevant for board-level corporate governance and strategic management, particularly towards determining social impact objectives and assessing performance. It can also provide insight for impact investors, for civil society monitoring, or for government policy-makers working on multi-stakeholder initiatives.
