The ERC are pleased to announce a new partnership with the Women’s Organisation to commission new pioneering research highlighting the role that social enterprise can play in economic recovery.
The Women’s Organisation a Liverpool-based charity that focuses on developing and delivering business support and training to women across the UK will collaborate with the ERC to deliver new research on the theme of social enterprise. Produced by recognised experts, the research will offer expert insights into how social enterprises can play a key role in driving economic recovery and support the communities hit hardest by the impact of COVID-19.
The research will be delivered in the form of a special series of five State of the Art (SOTA) reviews, tackling individual key themes in relation to social enterprise, such as employment and skills opportunities, diversity and inclusion, and environmental sustainability. Set to be published in Autumn 2020, the SOTA reviews will be launched through an online event and be made readily available for download for policymakers, business-leaders and wider audiences.
