Leading the Way Through Community Economic Development
and Social Enterprise
with Lisa Widdifield
Lisa will discuss our individual ability to affect ‘well-being’ within community Economic Development, including Social Enterprise and in the context of the greater economy. She will address how the language of well-being can better inform our conversations and debates regarding economy and growing inclusive communities.
