About this event

SEWF is the flagship event for the global social enterprise community, providing space for purpose-led people, policymakers, philanthropists, intermediaries and entrepreneurs to connect, learn and be inspired. Through SEWF Community Hubs, social enterprises and entrepreneurs can engage with SEWF22 content, network, share ideas and opportunities with each other locally.

We invite you to join us for the Alberta Community Hub of the SEWF22. This 2-day in-person event will feature a curated selection of SEWF22 session recordings paired with additional activities designed to provide attendees with a chance to connect and collaboratively engage with session topics. Additionally, we will ‘bring it all home’ on day two with a local speaker and discussions about connecting the session topics to the Alberta context. Did we mention breakfast and lunch is included both days?

Here's what you can expect:

  • Bringing the SEWF22 into the Alberta Context
  • Meaningful dialogue, conversations, and connections
  • Inspiring keynotes, panels and fireside chats featuring big ideas and unheard stories
  • Networking opportunities in-person and online

The themes for our two day Community Hub are:

  • Indigenous social enterprise
  • Moving past language for social impact
  • Supportive systems & policy for social change
  • In our own backyard
