Event Details

Food affects our health, local and global economies and the environment. While Canadians have an increasing interest in healthy eating, there is much to be done to foster sustainable agriculture and procurement practices, build local food economies, and decrease rampant food insecurity.

In celebration of World Food Day, please join us on Tuesday, October 16th for a panel discussion on the barriers to fostering sustainable food systems, and innovations that are helping to address this need. This event will be held at Maizal Quesadilla Café—a restaurant dedicated to community, social enterprise, and sustainability. Our panel includes:

Katie German, Director of Programs, FoodShare Toronto
Gabriela Ituarte, Co-Founder, Maizal Quesadilla Café
Tania Little, Chief Development and Partnerships Officer, Food Banks Canada
Lori Stahlbrand, Health Policy Specialist/Lead, Toronto Food Strategy, City of Toronto

The discussion will be moderated by WISE-TO planning committee member Ava-Dayna Sefa.

Dinner will be provided.
Please email by Friday, October 12th to indicate any dietary restrictions.

Women Investing for a Sustainable Economy (WISE) is a community of women contributing to the ESG* investment industry with the purpose of connecting, deepening relationships, learning and sharing expertise. Our collective aspiration is to lead ESG investing into the mainstream and to do it with fun and camaraderie. WISE members commit to "take the call" -- ready and willing to support one another.


Founded in February 2012 by Lori Choi, Lily S. Trager and Eva Zlotnicka, WISE is based in New York City, with local chapters in BostonWashington DC, San FranciscoToronto and London. Each chapter is run by committed Chapters Leaders and depends upon community members to host and organize monthly gatherings in homes, offices and sometimes public spaces.  Additional events are planned on an ad-hoc basis around specific interests and themes or to feature external speakers, such as mentors and industry leaders. WISE currently includes over 800 contributing members representing ESG catalysts across the investment ecosystem. This includes public and private asset managers, wealth managers, investment consultants, investors, analysts, data providers, NGOs, and more.


The WISE-Toronto Chapter is proudly led by Hyewon Kong, Jackie Daitchman and Karolina Kosciolek. You can reach the WISE-Toronto Chapter Leaders at wisetochapterleaders (at) gmail (dot) com. Please email wisefounders (at) gmail (dot) com with your ideas on how to further develop our community.


*We use the term ESG as a way to represent environmental, social and governance related investing approaches including: sustainable, responsible, impact, mission-related and beyond.
