It's The Jamaica Stock Exchange & You Podcast, and I am your host, Heneka Watkis-Porter.

Over the years, there has been heightened interest in the social sector. This area delves way down, examining ways to change how members of the society think, act, cooperate and realize their potential. The Jamaica Social Stock Exchange (JSSE) comes in to play here.

The JSSE is a social program driven by the JSE’s practice of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), in partnership with companies listed on the JSE, international development partners, local donors and donors in the Jamaican Diaspora. The JSSE demonstrates a practical application of the five (5) Ps of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with a People-Centered approach: People, Planet, Prosperity, Partnerships and Peace. To share on, Financing the Social Sector, is Nora Blake, Manager of the JSSE.

Some of what we looked at were:

  • What is meant by the social sector?
  • Why is the social sector important?
  • About the JSSE
  • Projects of the JSSE
  • Listing a project on the JSSE

And lots more.
