How social innovation supports inclusive societies

The promise of economic progress is yet to be fully realized. Despite advances in wealth the world over, inequality continues to grow, resulting in increasing numbers of ‘working poor’, displaced migrants, and others shut out from opportunities of mobility, health and education.


Join CIFAR and the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation on May 5th in Montreal for a Change Makers symposium exploring the challenges of inequality in our society today, and what opportunities social innovation has to drive social inclusion.

CIFAR Fellows and community leaders will exchange insights and understanding to help community groups, businesses and policy leaders uncover innovations that will help people thrive in our changing world.

Moderated by Antonia Maioni.

The symposium is followed by a networking reception at 4:30 PM.
