Introducing the McConnell Blog!

Two people talkingBrigid-Shea-AuthorWith the holiday season almost upon us and 2015 just around the corner, we naturally begin to reflect upon the year we’ve just had and the new one about to begin. And so in this spirit of reflection that we find ourselves in, we thought it would be the perfect time to launch the McConnell Blog.
The blog will provide us with a unique opportunity to regularly and openly share learnings and insights, essentially reflection pieces, about the Foundation’s work and that of our partners and grantees.
In our blog, you will not only be able to hear from our President and CEO, Stephen Huddart, but also from our staff, as they reflect on the specific areas that they work in and the initiatives and projects they are leading – whether that be in the world of food, social finance, social entrepreneurship and higher education, or child and youth mental health, to name but a few.
The Foundation’s mission is to engage Canadians in building a more innovative, inclusive, sustainable, and resilient society. Launching this blog is just a new way for us to further this mission. It is a more accessible and personal voice for the Foundation, which will allow us to engage in a regular conversation, albeit virtual, with you – our partners and friends. We look forward to updating you on what we are up to or more accurately ‘thinking about’, and hope that you will enjoy reading our blog entries as we go along!
