Join CIFAR and the Toronto Child & Family Network for a Change Makers workshop in which research, community and government leaders will explore how social inequalities within and between neighbourhoods can impact social capital networks and in turn neighbourhood outcomes. With this understanding, participants will also discuss what neighbourhood settings can best support the well-being of children and families and how to work collectively to improve outcomes.
This workshop opens with a networking lunch at 12:00 PM
