Working to remove systemic constraints on social enterprise development

We believe in the work that jobs-focused social enterprises are doing on the ground each and every day in their communities. It’s not easy running a business that employs the overlooked and underserved in a sector that sits outside mainstream policy (in most jurisdictions). We want to use our advocacy efforts to make it easier for work-integrated social enterprises (WISE) to scale and grow their impact.

That’s why our team is involved in advocacy, to put the WISE sector on the map so that it receives the policy and financial support that it deserves. The White Box Enterprises team works with other sector development organisations, universities and governments to advocate for appropriate systems and services to support the growth of jobs-focused social enterprises. Our advocacy is driven by our learnings working with social enterprises doing the hard yards.

Getting paid for the job outcomes you create.

White Box Enterprises CEO, Luke Terry, has led a significant agenda with the Australian Government to recognise the work social enterprises undertake to support those excluded from mainstream employment.


White Box Enterprises proudly hosts the 2022 Social Enterprise World Forum.

On 28-29 September, 2770 delegates (in person and virtually) representing 93 countries came together for SEWF22 in Meeanjin, Brisbane for two incredible days of learning, inspiration and connection.
