Building Community Wealth: Social Procurement and Purchasing


Building Community Wealth: Social Procurement and Purchasing




March 22, 2022
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Community Wealth Building (CWB) is a people-centered approach to local economic development that aims to reorganize local economies so that wealth is not extracted but redirected back into communities. We recognize community wealth building as one of the key tools we can use to work towards an equitable economic recovery. 

This webinar aims to highlight tools of community wealth building by focusing on social procurement and social purchasing. 

At this event, you will hear from experts, executives, and community partners on building a social procurement strategy, understanding how these strategies can break down barriers to resources in our community, and how these strategies are currently being implemented in business. 

Why attend? 

  • Learn how to move forward on your own social procurement and purchasing strategy 
  • Hear from those who are successfully using social procurement strategies to drive results 
  • Understand how these strategies can help us unlock potential within our communities and create a more inclusive economy 
  • Be empowered to incorporate principles of community wealth building in your personal and organizational approaches 

This event will be most useful for business owners; executives; directors responsible for human resources and procurement; and staff responsible for community engagement activities.
