The Interviews:

MEASURING SOCIAL IMPACT (14 Oct, 17:00 – 18:00 )

Evidence of positive social impact is a useful tool for assisting businesses in improving their services and providing a differentiator when seeking out investment opportunities. The difficulty in measuring impact stems from the fact that there currently is no standardised method. Social entrepreneurs, investors and corporate organisations may be interested in different social issues or geographies which results in different evidence-based case studies for demonstrating positive social impact.

During this webinar, in collaboration with Moody’s Corporation, we’ll be exploring what social impact means, what are the ways we are currently measuring it, and if is there a way to standardise methodology so that organisations can collaborate more easily to achieve shared outcomes.


Mary Rose Gunn, Founder and CEO, The Fore
Emma Kisby, UK Managing Director, CoGo
Arlene Isaacs-Lowe, Global Head of CSR, Moody’s
Jason Saul, Founder and CEO, Mission Measurement

WHY DIVERSITY IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS (15th October, 17.00 – 18.00 )

Discriminatory pay practices cost the UK economy an estimated £127bn in lost output each year, according to INvolve and the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR). What’s more, the top 25% organisations in terms of gender, ethnicity and sexual orientation diversity were 12% more likely to outperform the national average turnover per capita than the least diverse employers. The numbers are clear: diversity is good for business. Join us to hear from June Sarpong on the benefits of building a diverse and inclusive workforce in a post-pandemic world. We’ll learn about the hidden costs of exclusion and explore the practical approaches companies can take to retain, promote and empower their minoritised members of staff.


June Sarpong OBE, Broadcaster
Paul van Zyl, Co-founder, The Conduit
