Social Enterprises Looks Back at Our Last Quarter


GoGreen.jpgSocial Enterprises worked tirelessly this past quarter to bring our clients the best in event experience. Our team hit the ground running with two back to back events and hasn’t stopped moving since. We are thankful to work with some incredible organizations to build events that strive for a better future.

We started September down in San Francisco for Carbon Smart Building Day. The event centered on decarbonization of the built environment; as architects, engineers and more focused on the tools needed to thrive in a zero net carbon future. We were delighted to see over 250 passionate attendees focus on solutions for carbon reduction.  The Shades of Green Forum in Portland, OR worked to promote a discussion of inclusivity and diversity within the energy industry. Attendees came together to find strategies to build a diverse workforce. As part of the Shades of Green Forum, we had the opportunity to organize the Van Jones Visiting Sage event where we were able to learn Van’s perspective on diversity, how his experiences throughout his career have shaped his view and much more. This week’s focus on green energy and a diverse future left attendees feeling inspired, hopeful and action-oriented.

The team ended September at Rewards Northwest where industry professionals came together to hear the latest in total rewards and benefits strategies. We organized this biennial event dedicated to giving individuals and organizations the opportunity to develop their management strategies while furthering their careers and creating best practices.

Our 11th annual Go Green Portland occurred in October, giving attendees the chance to connect with professionals in a variety of sustainability-focused roles and industries. We were so excited to connect with another passionate audience on the subject of green solutions and collaboration. From our keynote speakers to each breakout session, the day was full of action and discussion.

Social Enterprises took a break from the Portland weather to head down to sunny Sacramento California for the NorCal Fleet Technology Forum & Expo where our team worked to bring together clean fleet professionals focused on alternative fuel solutions and clean fleet best practices.

Our final event of the year took us to Salem Oregon for the fifth biennial Within Our Reach conference where we celebrated the tenth anniversary of the Willamette River Initiative and joined public agencies, local tribes, students and community leaders in understanding the importance of our rivers. Within Our Reach gives attendees the opportunity to discuss the broad scope of ecological protection while connecting over a shared passion for environmental restoration and preservation. We are so happy to have been a part of this event since 2010 and were delighted to see such a passionate and successful turnout.


Within Our Reach, Attendees Learn Together

Before the holiday season was in full swing our team took some time to regroup and reconnect. We spent the day learning how to better serve our clients and collaborating on new ideas.


Our Team Builds A Web of Connection and Appreciation 

We look forward to starting 2019 with the passion and dedication that Social Enterprises is known for, bringing optimism and a fresh perspective to decades of experience.
