Following the release of the EN Top 100 Women in Social Enterprise List, we sat down with some of the featured women changemakers to hear their perspective on their careers and the social enterprise sector.
In the spirit of empowering women leaders in Europe, EN has launched the Top 100 Women in Social Enterprise Initiative. Through this initiative EN celebrates women in the social enterprise sector, spotlighting their impact journey and achievements, connecting them to learn from and inspire each other.
Based on almost 500 answers from an open call for nominations, the jury selected 100 women to be featured on the Top 100 Women in Social Enterprise List. The chosen women stood out as having created significant positive social and/or environmental impact and demonstrated outstanding leadership skills. We had the pleasure to sit down with some the women on the List and hear them tell their own stories of becoming successful impact practitioners. Read these exclusive interviews and get inspired by their stories of leading the way in the areas of social entrepreneurship and innovation.
