Breakfast on corporate social innovation with SIX, Nesta and McConnell

On 22nd February, SIX and Global Council partners Nesta and the McConnell Foundation hosted a breakfast on corporate social innovation in London.

There are a multitude of ways that corporations are contributing to social change, but these initiatives can often feel piecemeal with varying motivations. For this first breakfast, we invited key thinkers to highlight the different ways corporations are supporting social change (and moving beyond corporate social responsibility), and explored what’s needed to better align different movements and sectors to increase the impact of this work globally.
