by Mirabelle Morah / June 2022

“The meaningful connections made at SEWF … was like finding the various missing pieces in our organisation’s jigsaw puzzle, ones which empowered us to turn theory into action, and make our purpose whole”. ⏤ Kenneth Kwok, Global Citizen Capital

Alongside SEWF 2022 Co-host, White Box Enterprises, we’re delighted to announce the first (of many) SEWF22 speakers! As the flagship event for the global social enterprise community and through our program of events, SEWF provides an opportunity for purpose-led individuals, policymakers, philanthropists and social entrepreneurs to connect, learn and be inspired.
