Three SROI accreditation training workshops were organized in Hong Kong and Taipei over the past month.
In partnership with the Dharma Drum Institute of Liberal Arts (DILA), Social Value International organized the first-ever SROI practitioner training workshop in Taiwan on May 31st and June 1st. Jeremy Nicholls of SVI, Ken Ito of SROI Japan and Terence Yuen of HKI-SIA were trainers conducting the workshop. Twenty two participants from corporate and social sectors and academics joined the two-day training which was held at the DILA Training Centre at downtown Ximending. After the completion of the workshop, the Taiwanese training participants were now exploring the possibility of establishing the local affiliate Social Value Taiwan to further promote professional development of social impact assessment in Taiwan.
Before traveling to Taipei, two SROI workshops were also conducted in Hong Kong during May 19th-20th and 27th-28th with a total of 29 participants, among which included two overseas participants – one from Thailand and another from Singapore.
Jeremy Nicholls and Terence Yuen served as the co-trainers and the two workshops were respectively the ninth and tenth practitioner workshops organized in Hong Kong over the past three years. Deloitte Foundation served as the venue sponsor for the latest round of training in Hong Kong.
