Our social innovation program (SiG@MaRS) works with many female social entrepreneurs who are creating a new path outside stereotypical roles. To celebrate them and the other “fearless women” making a difference, SiG held an event featuring Judith Thompson’s play, Body & Soul at the Tarragon Theatre on Tuesday, June 16, 2009.
There, Allyson Hewitt, Director, SiG@MaRS, and Pramilla Ramdahan of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, announced a feasibility study for the School for Social Entrepreneurs based on the UK model. This model has resulted in a greater number of women entrepreneurs (versus men).
Author Julia Moulden talks about the rise of women, on a mission to save the world.
