How Organizations Can Overcome Hate and Inspire Meaningful Societal Change

The pickup truck attack in London, Ont., on June 6 has shaken Canadians. A family of five out for a walk was targeted because of their religion and background, with four of them killed and a nine-year old boy critically injured.

The outpouring of support from Canada’s corporate community has been strong. Senior business leaders are in a unique position to be able to drive real, sustained societal change – arguably even more than government.

Talent Canada, a national media brand that looks at employer issues from a C-suite perspective, is organizing a conversation featuring business leaders to discuss the way forward: What can organizations do to help eliminate hate in society?

We’d like to invite you to attend this unique and powerful conversation with a panel of leading CEOs including representatives from Bruce Power, LifeWorks and Pathwise Credit Union.

Donations: Talent Canada is not accepting sponsors for this free event, but attendees are encouraged to make a donation to the boy who lost his family.
