Social Value Canada – Social Value Matters – Digital

What to expect from the #SVM2020 Conference

Live Content That Will Endure

We are counting the days until #SVM2020 goes live, bringing together practitioners, leaders and experts for a truly global conversation on social value. A cross-sector dialogue, #SVM2020 will unpick how businesses, governments and civil society can express the value of what matters most, prioritizing social, economic and financial outcomes.

With sessions of interest across sectors, conversations to unfold include: What is the value of culture? What is the role of corporate and government procurement in advancing equality and environmental sustainability? Will wellbeing economies enable the world to #BuildBackBetter? What is the role of business in achieving the UN SDGs by 2030? And much, much more.

A live ticket gives access to the most important conversations of our time. A replay ticket enables return and on demand access to key learnings as part of the emerging SVI library. Will you be part of the new #SocialValueMatters movement and join us on September 28?

Speaker Profiles

Hon. Audrey Tang, Digital Minister, Taiwan

Digital Minister Audrey Tang is both Taiwan’s youngest and its first transgender minister. Audrey’s unique perspective and skills are helping to shape Taiwan’s democratic process by facilitating open government and transparency.  Minister Tang speaks with intelligence, enthusiasm and humour on empowering democracy through data and is a much sought-after speaker internationally.

Audrey Tang firmly believes that democratic governments must trust its citizens with data. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been a clear example of this success. In creating an app to show, in real-time, the availability and location of masks and future supply, citizens of Taiwan were able to calmly and confidently protect their health throughout the onset of a global pandemic. 

We are thrilled to have Minister Tang speaking at #SVM2020 live from Taiwan. Wherever you are in the world, #SVM2020 has content for you, in your time zone. To register for this incredible conversation, click here.
