COVID-19 Community Resilience: Let's Broaden the Dialogue




An online forum to discuss COVID-19 related responses among impact investors

All of us in the impact investing and philanthropic sectors are working to develop our own responses to COVID-19 for our own organizations, clients, and the larger ecosystem we are committed to building.

It is critical at this time to have a shared understanding of these efforts and the experiences of social entrepreneurs and local organizations that are confronted with unprecedented events. Together, we can find ways to support each other and increase the impact of our efforts, both for the immediate emergency in the weeks ahead and the medium-term need for resilience and regeneration in the months that follow.

Join SVX and Toniic as we convene individual and institutional impact investors, family offices, foundations and philanthropists in a facilitated regional online forum to discuss and coordinate COVID-19 responses here in BC. Several leading organizations and players in BC's impact investing ecosystem will help start the conversation, sharing their plans of support for entrepreneurs and local businesses in BC. We will then break out into smaller facilitated group discussions for all participants to share what they are experiencing, find ways that we could work together, and identify any gaps that we could possibly address collectively.
