SEWF 2022

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.

As the Australian co-host, this year’s Social Enterprise World Forum exceeded all our expectations. This was catalytic moment for the Australian social enterprise community. A collaboration of so many incredible purpose-driven leaders, discovering a world of new possibilities, with the best yet to come.

SEWF22 was made possible through the support of our impact partners and supporters, as well as the entire Australian social enterprise community who threw all their energy into this – both in the lead up to, and during SEWF. We are truly proud of the outcomes we created together through this experience.

  • 2,770 participants
  • 93 countries represented
  • 70 sessions
  • 926 bursaries awarded
