Through a series of panel discussions we will explore the triumphs and struggles of leaders as they address societal problems.

Generous Futures: Driving Change for Good is a series of virtual discussions exploring the triumphs and struggles of leaders as they address societal problems. Drawing on the voices of non-profit and charity leaders, corporate sector champions, community advocates and influencers, Generous Futures aims to shed light on topics of national and global significance.

Canada is often touted as a welcoming new home for scores of people seeking asylum from various forms of oppression and persecution. What are the hard realities of resettlement? How are leaders mobilizing their resources, networks and efforts? What have we learned from recent events? Join us for a panel discussion that will explore how leaders are taking action as global humanitarian crises continue to rise at an alarming pace.
