National speakers’ series, Inspiring Action for Social Impact, kicking off next week

Inspiring Action for Social Impact is a national speakers’ series comprised of a mix of in-person and online public talks by international thought leaders, applied learning workshops and dialogue on practical strategies for social innovation in Canada. The series begins with Christian Bason, Director of MindLab in Denmark, in Toronto on Monday May 9th at 6:00pm.
“For simplicity, I argue that the journey towards the highly innovative public organisation must be led simultaneously across four dimensions: Creating consciousness of what innovation is and means to the organisation; building capacity to innovate, from political context over strategy and organisational structure to people and culture; mastering a process of co-creating new solutions with people, not for them; and finally, to display the courage at all levels of management to really lead innovation.” from Leading Public Sector Innovation: Co-creating for a better society
Inspiring Action for Social Impact is presented by SiG, in partnership with the Foundation, MaRS Discovery District, PLAN Institute, the University of Waterloo, and The Public Policy Forum.
