New Award: One of the 50 Most Talented Social Innovators

I am delighted and honoured to learn that I am being recognized as one of the “50 Most Talented Social Innovators” by the World Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Congress in Mumbai, India on February 18, 2015. The theme of the Congress is “Connecting Minds: Creating the Future”.

The “50 Most Talented Social Innovators,” as awarded by a jury, pays tribute to those who are missionaries and passionate about innovation and who believe that innovation must contribute to social change are recognized. Visiting Mumbai and meeting other activists at the conference will give me a chance to talk about my hands-on work in Winnipeg, and my policy work in Canada – and hopefully raise the profile of Inner City Renovation: How a Social Enterprise Changes Lives and Communities, as well!
