Les entreprises sociales avec perspective de genre

workshop12:00 pm - 2:00 am

Intégrer la perspective de genre dans l’accompagnement à l’entreprenariat social nécessite une stratégie globale en développement et en fonctionnement de l’entreprise tout en assurant leur autonomisation des femmes et des hommes et à leur évolution équitable au sein de l’entreprise. L’analyse des inégalités de genre est essentielle dans ce processus. Cette approche en développement intègre aux valeurs et pratiques d’entreprendre autrement tout en assurant l’égalité de genre à toutes les étapes de la création et à l’évolution des entreprises sociales.

Innoweave Impact Accelerator

Pillar Nonprofit NetworkWhat is the Innoweave Impact Accelerator?

Since its launch in 2012, Innoweave has leveraged social innovation tools to help hundreds of organizations advance their mission and generate greater impact. They have used that experience to develop the Innoweave Impact Accelerator, a mini-workshop that helps organizations and collectives to clarify the impact they are working to achieve. A clear impact focus helps organizations and collaboratives more easily identify which social innovation approaches (such as developing a social enterprise) they can leverage to achieve and accelerate their impact.

What does the Innoweave Impact Accelerator involve?

The Impact Accelerator will:

  • Provide leadership teams and collectives an opportunity to step away from their day-to-day activities and think critically about the impact they are trying to achieve through their work.
  • Guide organizations and collectives through activities that will help them translate their aspirational mission into specific achievable impact goals. The session also introduces Theory of Change, a clear and actionable hypothesis of how an organization or collaborative will achieve its intended impact.
  • Provide participants with the opportunity to engage with and learn from other organizations that have successfully implemented social innovation tools to achieve their impact.
  • Highlight supports available through the Innoweave process, including opportunities to access coaching funding through Innoweave.

Business-savvy non-profits and socially savvy investors have Canada on the cusp of a social innovation breakthrough. Our plan is to leave the child welfare crisis, ballooning health care costs and epidemic levels of incarceration behind for good. To make it over the tipping point, all that is required is for governments to say “yes” to a shockingly simple question.

“. . . powerful alternatives to the status quo.”
Ry Moran, National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation

“Provocative, practical and promising.”
Barb Steele, Executive Director of Ashoka Canada

“. . . a new narrative, a refreshing approach . . .”
Loren Remillard, President and CEO, The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce

“Ground-breaking Canadian social entrepreneur Shaun Loney shows how it’s done. Innovation that leaves you asking, ‘Why isn’t everyone doing this already?”
Michael Toye, Executive Director of the Canadian CED Network
