Collective Voices Beyond #MeToo: Session 2
Karen Runde, Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship
In light of the #metoo movement, we propose a 2-part session to create and establish a collective voice on behavioral norms in the social enterprise and impact investing communities as well as an exploration of how to balance zero tolerance and restorative justice. Session 1 will be an interactive workshop and Session 2 is a fishbowl panel and discussion. More information about Session 2: Building off of the small group conversations in Session 1, this panel discussion will give attendees a chance to bring the ideas on behavioral norms in the social entrepreneur and impact investing ecosystem and how might we develop, adopt, communicate, and abide by these norms (ex: Codes of Conduct, Ways of Working, Zero Tolerance statement, etc). This session will also be facilitated Avary Kent of Conveners.org with support from Miller Center, Echoing Green, Skoll Foundation, Resonate, and DRK. The final session will conclude with a comprehensive panel to discuss solutions around the controversial topic of restorative justice in the social entrepreneur and impact investing spaces. Panelists will include voices from conveners, those seeking investment, and those providing investment.
