What does it take to scale and grow social innovations? And how does a mobile phone company come to be leading the way business can tackle gender-based violence. Andrew Dunnett, the Group Director of SDGs and Sustainable Business at Vodafone and the Director of their Vodafone Foundation explains all.
Vodafone is the largest mobile and network operator in Europe, and the world’s largest Internet of Things connectivity provider. Operating and partnering in 48 countries.
It is still rare for a social innovation to be successfully incubated, scaled and then embedded into core business activities. Vodafone has a clutch of them. During our conversation Andrew shares his vision of scaling impact for lasting good and how to make it happen. From partnering and incubating through to stakeholder engagement and influencing.
Our conversation also focuses on the leading work Vodafone has been doing to tackle domestic violence. Why this issue is so important, and practical advice on how to activate other businesses to take positive action.
