Topic Description: With our increasing social problems today, a good  
number of individuals are coming up with innovative and sustainable  
ways to address our challenges. In this first-of-series session, the  
guest speaker will begin with an examination of the types of social  
entrepreneurs who drive change to addressing many of our social  
challenges. The discussion will focus on understanding the mindset,  
paradigm, characteristics, and motivations of social entrepreneurs who  
are trying to drive change.

Program Description: Social entrepreneurship is gaining much attention  
among faculty members of the Ateneo community. There have been a  
number of initiatives from various school units in the areas of  
research and training, spearheaded by different individuals and  
program areas. As an academic institution, there is a need to  
strengthen the skills and deepen the knowledge of the Ateneo faculty  
in order to enhance their competencies to deliver knowledge products  
to the students.

The “Brown Bag Wednesday” intends to serve as one of the faculty  
development programs of ACSEnt to provide Ateneo educators and  
trainers the necessary knowledge on the emerging social enterprise  
sector. This aims to build on their knowledge base and deepen their  
understanding on social entrepreneurship, which is crucial to their  
work as faculty members.

The program will feature prominent social entrepreneurs, advocates and  
educators who have a rich field-knowledge experience on the sector and  
will run on a scheduled Wednesday once a month during lunch or coffee  
break. The activity will be scheduled for over an hour with the  
speaker leading a topic and will be followed by an idea-sharing session.
