CWCF is pleased to launch the Justice, Equity, Diversity, Decolonization and Inclusion (JEDDI) Social Acquisition project, which started in September. This project, funded by an Investment Readiness Program Ecosystem Builders’ grant, is a continuation of the work of the University of Waterloo’s Legacy Leadership Lab (L3), whose final report is available here. The JEDDI Social Acquisition project is focused around promotion and networking of the conversion opportunity to co-operatives and other social purpose organizations with a focus on equity-deserving groups especially women, BIPOC, youth, and people with disabilities. It will also promote these opportunities among service providers.
Janielle Maxwell is serving as Project Coordinator for this project. Read more about her here.
