Measuring social impact is often a difficult task that attracts much debate because there is no one-size-fits-all solution that could be applied across all social enterprises. Despite the difficulty, social impact assessment is not only necessary, but critical.
Recognising the importance of social impact assessment (SIA), ACSEP was invited by the Thai Social Enterprise Office (TSEO) to conduct a three-day workshop from 26 – 28 November, 2015. Various stakeholders of the Thai social enterprise sector attended the workshop, including social entrepreneurs themselves, impact investors, researchers and policymakers.
The three-day workshop was a fruitful one for participants as Prof Lam Swee Sum and Dr Weina Zhang shared the latest developments of SIA tools around the world and worked with participants in applying the SIA frameworks to their work.
ACSEP thanks TSEO for the collaboration. We look forward to future collaboration and partnership opportunities.
