Community Building Through Social Entrepreneurship: Eleanor Chiu Addresses Women’s Club

One of our Founders, Eleanor Chiu, had the wonderful opportunity to be the guest speaker at The Women’s Canadian Club of Calgary this past Valentine’s Day.

The Women’s Canadian Club of Calgary was formed to enable its members to become more knowledgeable as Canadians and to foster a sense of pride in Canada. Throughout the years, the Club has provided an opportunity for their Members to become informed on a wide range of topics – local, national and international in nature. They provide a platform for distinguished speakers who both inform and entertain at their monthly luncheons.

Eleanor discussed community building through social entrepreneurship through an array of topics:

  • How Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” identifies the heart of social entrepreneurship.
  • TCF’s origin story.
  • The concept of “Doing Well by Doing Good” for the for-profit sector.
  • TCF’s definition of social entrepreneurship.
  • Outstanding examples of how business models can be used to serve society:  Novo Nordisk, First Book, and Calgary’s own Women in Need Society (WINS).
