sOPHIa Oxford is a newly formed independent not-for-profit organization. It is Oxford University’s first social enterprise spin-out, formed in partnership with the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI).
Our vision is a world in which those who profit harness their own abilities in the global effort to end poverty.
Our mission is to enable enterprises worldwide to manage their investments to end poverty as effectively as they measure money, in accountable joint efforts with their business family, business partners, local communities and with their governments.
Our team values
How will we do this?
- Establish a global platform for enterprises to implement the business MPI amongst employees and their families, their contractors, suppliers and supply chains.
- Document and Report on impact of private and public-private strategies to move employees and their families out of poverty.
- Create and implement a Good Practices Seal.
- Maintain a partnership with OPHI for sustained, innovative, pioneering research on all dimensions of poverty.
