Social Innovation is an emerging field that brings together the corporate, philanthropic, government and civil society/NGO sectors to collaborate and address some of the most pressing and urgent social issues of our time. With new practices around innovation, finance, social enterprise and technology, opportunities to work together to build solutions to complex problems have arisen.
How do we build, develop, influence and re-engineer social systems to drive positive change? What role can philanthropy and corporate citizenship play in this?
Join us as some of Canada’s pioneers in Social Innovation discuss the challenges, the successes and the way forward to a more socially productive and better Canada.
