The world of social enterprise loves to celebrate visionary founders. These entrepreneurs take big risks and overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to bring their grand visions to life. But what about their counterparts–the internal leaders who build the team and operational infrastructure to execute on the vision of their partners?
At Friday Consulting, we understand the vital role these passionate leaders play in creating successful high impact organizations. We see these individuals as skillful weavers, creating and interlacing the many pieces that must come together to form a thriving organization. The meticulous work of these weavers often goes uncelebrated, and now we want to give some well deserved recognition to our peers in these positions.
Together with Social Capital Markets and representatives from Generation Citizen and Eye to Eye, we have created the Impact Weavers Award: Celebrating the leaders who create the fabric of social enterprise. Learn more about our design team.
