WMCA invites you to launch of its West Midlands Social Economy Task Force report

Over the past year representatives from the West Midlands Combined Authority’s seven constituent local councils along with social enterprise and third sector practitioners drawn from all parts of the social economy in the West Midlands have been meeting as part of a West Midlands Social Economy Task Force.

The task force has been a sector-led exploration of how the WMCA and its partners can boost the social economy across the region — and why doing so matters.

Join WMCA and guests from 2pm on Thursday 9th January 2020 at:

The Moseley School of Art Association
496 Moseley Road
Birmingham B12 9AZ

You’ll hear…
» Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, celebrating social enterprise and outlining WMCA’s commitment to ensuring that we double the size of the social economy in 10 years.
» Gillian Morbey and Carole Donnelly, co-chairs of the Social Economy Taskforce, drawing on their long experience in social enterprise and exploring the work of the Taskforce.
» Social enterprise leaders from across the region, telling stories of the mission-led work they do for our region and sharing their work via a pop-up marketplace.
You’ll enjoy…
» Delicious snacks prepared by social enterprise caterers.
