Poverty: Giving with Purpose

Description

TICKETS ON SALE UNTIL SAT 12 AUG 10AM
(TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR - CASH PAYMENT ONLY)


Companies that do social good are all the rage these days. However, are we doing it for the right reasons?

In conjunction with Festival for Good 2017, Open Social presents a thought-provoking film screening and panel discussion on the "Business of Poverty."


Part 1: Film Screening


Poverty, Inc is an award-winning feature-length documentary that challenges global perceptions of charity organisations and the motives of NGOs that seek to serve the poor but yet profit the most.


Part 2: Post Screening Panel Discussion


Join our panel of passionate social entrepreneurs and industry professionals who will share their insights on how they do good while doing well in business.
