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.

We were delighted to have a conversation with three seasoned social value practitioners:

  • Melek De-Wint, Independent Social Impact and Impact Management Consultant
  • Dan Kershaw, Executive Director of the Furniture Bank
  • Scott Richter, the Business and Innovation Manager in the Parks and Recreation Department, City of Medicine Hat

Between them, they brought a wide range of experience in impact measurement and management and illustrated the applicability of SROI to vastly different contexts. They shared first-hand experiences, valuable takeaways, and insights into overcoming challenges while conducting SROI studies.

This was the first in a new series of Practitioner Gatherings that is shaped by the needs and interests of SVC members as well as SROI, social value and impact management practitioners.

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.
