Social Value Stakeholder Forum

18 October 2016

Location: Etc. Venues, The Hatton, 51-53 Hatton Garden, London, EC1N 8HN

Registration: 09:30

Forum: 10:00 to 16:30

Join us on 18 October in London for a dynamic and productive discussion on social value and impact measurement, and the role of standards.

This free event will bring together policy makers, thought leaders and practitioners interested in debating social value and the merits of building consensus around the very concept and practice of social value and impact measurement. Together, we will look to establish how standards can help organizations in the public, private and the third sector understand and enhance the positive impact and the value of their (community) engagement projects, policies and activities, thus enabling them to optimize the social, environmental and economic contributions they make.

The event provides a unique opportunity to get together with your peers, collaborators and other organizations to review and debate the key findings of a recent BSI research,  share your views and experiences, explore the needs and options for standards development, as well as how future standards could benefit the wide range of stakeholders interested in social value and impact measurement. Your expertise, knowledge and opinions matter to us, and will enable us to gain a better understanding of how standards and BSI (in its capacity as the UK’s National Standards Body), can:  

  • Consolidate and build upon existing effort
  • Determine opportunities and future priority areas
  • Build a common understanding of what is meant by social value and social impact (measurement)

In a dynamically facilitated and inspiring session, we will aim to explore opportunities for collaborative standardization initiatives, and address questions such as:

  • What are the key issues and potential solutions for social value measurement?
  • Is there a need to build wide consensus around social value measurement through standards and standardization?
  • Are there aspects of existing standards that need to be enhanced?

Who should attend?

This event is aimed at sustainability thought leaders, senior practitioners and managers, and those accountable for strategic decision-making from across the private, public and third sector. 

We look forward to welcoming you on the 18th, and having a productive and inspiring conversation!
