Q&A with Social Traders for procurement teams and businesses
The Frankston Social Enterprise Hub is hosting a free online Q&A session with local social traders.
Furneaux and Barraket (2014) define social procurement as ‘the acquisition of a range of assets and services, with the aim of intentionally creating social outcomes (both directly and indirectly)’.
Purchasing from social enterprise (organisations that trade to fulfil a social/environmental mission) is one way of procuring socially.
This session provides procurement teams and businesses based in or serving the Frankston Mornington Peninsula region with an opportunity to chat with the team at Social Traders in a small group about procuring socially. Ask your questions about the challenges, the impact that’s possible, and how to leverage a Social Traders membership.
