Sport has a magical ability to unite millions of people across different economic, social, geographic and political lines. You can likely think of several great sporting moments that you will never forget. With those memories in mind, one begins to appreciate the enormous responsibility for the organizers of the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games. They have an opportunity to do something special that will impact entire communities for generations to come. We want to know how they’re doing it.
On April 1st TSSS will host a panel of experts including Ann Duffy who was the Corporate Sustainability Officer to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games and who continues to provide CSR guidance to the IOC and FIFA. Our panel will explore the power of sport to reach people and communities like nothing else can. Topics to be discussed include: Community Engagement, Sustainable Purchasing, Importance of a Clear Vision, Diversity and Inclusion, Branding and Leaving a Legacy.
Join us for the first of three webinars on starting conversations about fossil fuel divestment with your faith community.
Topic: Laying Out the Moral Rationale for Fossil Fuel Divestment
Speakers: Dr. Lenore Fahrig, member of the Creation Matters Environmental Sub-committee, Anglican Diocese of Ottawa and professor of biology at Carelton University. Laura Hamilton, member of Divest Waterloo
Is your investing strategy undermining your philanthropic efforts?
Join us in a conversation with economist, lawyer, and buy local movement advocate Michael Shuman, on how investing in companies that align with your charitable goals can grow your assets.
Our purpose is to bring together families and their advisors who have assets under management in a foundation or our thinking of setting up a foundation for two days of thought provoking commentary. The discussion will be centered on how assets managed and invested in sustainable companies can grow your portfolio without offsetting your philanthropic efforts.
Our goal is to start the conversation on asset management for growth in foundations focusing on sustainable businesses/social enterprises and to provide tools for families to have the conversation at their family council meetings and for conversations with their advisors. This would also be a resource for advisors to draw upon for when families bring this forward.
