Impact report out now!!
June 30, 2022
Our first bi-annual impact report is out, and we are so excited!!
As we welcome a new season and cap off Indigenous History Month, we wanted to take a moment to share our first bi-annual impact report on our blog!
In May 2020, we launched round one of the inaugural Advancing Indigenous Gender Equality through Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship Program, funded by Women and Gender Equality Canada. Of 238 eligible applications, ten projects received $2.5-million in proof of concept (seed) grants to develop and test their innovative ideas.
The stories in this report are beautifully woven to share how the first cohort of Indigenous innovators within this program are dismantling colonial and oppressive systems and rebuilding them through love, respect, responsibility, and reciprocity to all our relations.
We are walking alongside them as they nourish, heal, and care for their communities, Lands, Waters, and Skies through social innovation. Rooted in ancestral ways of knowing and being, these innovative solutions are creating the conditions for future generations to thrive.
We continue to be in awe of the Round 1 innovators as they progress through their journeys. We are grateful to be grounding ourselves in Indigenous ways of Being and Knowing in co-creating the future of innovation.
