How to be a changemaker – Are you curious to know how to impact people and planet in a positive way?
In this Lunch Talk Lisen Wirén, Programme Manager at the IKEA Social Entrepreneurship at Inter IKEA Group will share her thoughts and drive to work with social entrepreneurship and to contribute to positive change.
IKEA has been collaborating with social businesses since 2012, and currently, the initiative is generating work for more than 30,000 people. Handcrafted collections and products produced in collaborations with social businesses are sold in IKEA stores worldwide. Today, IKEA announces scaling up social entrepreneurship business with the ambition to reach 95,000 jobs by 2025.
For several years, IKEA has been working with social entrepreneurs to create a better everyday life through long-term job opportunities and livelihood for people who need it the most. The social businesses produce unique handcrafted products in order to create financial independence and life-changing opportunities for marginalized groups and women in vulnerable communities. The ability to earn an income also has a direct and positive effect on nearly 150,000 family members of these artisans today.
