The Canadian Social Value Exchange (#SVCANEX) is an ongoing series of gatherings for members, thought leaders and practitioners across the breadth of the social value community.  

Every day, momentum grows around topics exploring the need to change the way the world accounts for value; in decision-making, in reporting, and within sustainability strategies. Join us in this important exchange as we strive to address inequality, to achieve the sustainable development goals, and to enable greater well-being for all. 

SV Around the World

Social Value Canada members were joined by colleagues from Social Value US, Social Value Aotearoa, and Social Value International, to discuss how social value practice has and is evolving around the world.  Sara, Yulia, Jo, and Nicole are involved in very different ways. They offer great context and perspective.  An interesting listen!

Listen to Social Value International CEO, Ben Carpenter, discuss current and evolving international priorities, and how they relate to Social Value Canada’s role as a joint member network and current priorities.  Its a succinct overview and hugely informative.

Gender empowerment has driven all of Bonnie’s work — from establishing a social enterprise that supports marginalized women across Asia and Africa to founding a consultancy that promotes diversity within impact investing.  

SROI (social return on investment) training has shaped her international career, how she conducts impact measurement and stakeholder engagement projects, and has enabled her to speak truth to powerful institutions.
