We've put together three engaging conversations with social entrepreneurs for you. Join us for all of them, or whichever sessions you're most interested in. Starting Sunday, August 16, 2020, at 12 pm, after church, get schooled in the awesomeness of Jacquelyn Hunt, Tara Wilhelmi, Patrina White, Brandi Grayson, and Carmella Glenn. Joined by Francesca Hong, Preston Austin, Alex Lindenmeyer, and more. Grab tickets here
Session #01: Cook it Forward - An Innovative Approach to Addressing Food Insecurity — Get introduced to Cook it Forward, end-to-end system that addresses food insecurity, without shirking the last-mile. Cook it Forward (CiF) is a COVID-19 response pivot collaboration. The collaboration involves local farms, 20 downtown Madison restaurants, food distribution sites, and black-and-brown led local nonprofits providing last-mile delivery services. It targets the food insecure, who also has accessibility and mobility issues that prevent them from getting food at centralized service centers. Learn more about how restaurateurs, local nonprofits, and others came together to create a service focused on serving Madison's most vulnerable, but adhere to its economic equity principles. Grab a ticket.
Session #02: The Power of Partnerships: Just Bakery and Short Stack Eatery — Carmella Glenn and Alex Lindenmeyer met at the 2017 Social Good Summit after Carmella had introduced Just Bakery to Madison and the world. Since then, they have partnered, strategized, supported, and created a fantastic professional partnership that strengthens both of their business. This has allowed them to both think, test, and try new things through this period of social unrest that has nourished their ventures. Learn more, grab a ticket.
Session #03: Building Collaborations - A Conversation with Brandi Grayson Join Brandi Grayson, CEO, Urban Triage, and others discuss how collaborations can strengthen, support, and extend the reach of small social enterprise. The building and growing of partnerships to add allies, amplify power & voice, build movements, and reduce financial risk. Brandi is a local powerhouse in the #blacklivesmatter movement and the founder of Urban Triage. Urban Triage leads regional efforts to empower Black families, mobilize community resources, and create transformative justice. She is also the catalyst for the Dane County Collaborative of Black Service Providers ("DCCBSP"). DCCBSP is composed of small, grassroots to mid-sized community-based organizations that have been mobilizing since early March to meet the needs of those most affected by COVID-19.
