S3E6-Social enterprise and community development

Social enterprises are increasingly a tool in the community development toolbox. In November 2018, Drs. Natalie Slawinski and Blair Winsor from the Faculty of Business Administration at Memorial University of Newfoundland and the Harris Centre organized a workshop and a public forum on Fogo Island to present the final results of a research project on the role of social enterprises in community development. Using the excerpts from that event and the conversation in the studio with Dr. John Schouten, Canada Research Chair in Social Enterprise, and Kimberly Orren, director of Fishing for Success, this episode is your primer on the role social enterprises could play in rural development.
