Joel Solomon has been described as a “business guru,” an “unlikely revolutionary” and a “connector” of people and ideas.
As the President and CEO of Renewal Partners, Joel takes a multi-pronged, whole-system approach to social change. Renewal and Renewal2 have provided grants to 121 groups and invested in 70 enterprises in British Columbia to support the long-term sustainability of the local economy.
Joel has also played an integral role in establishing Tides Canada, a powerhouse of philanthropic activity, and the Hollyhock Institute, an education, networking and retreat centre for the next generation of people making a difference.
Renewal Partners is inspired by a 500-year vision of the future tied to a practical 50-year strategy. By engaging the not-for-profit, for-profit and public service sectors, Joel’s work proves that holistic long-term change is possible.
Join us on December 3 to learn more about what has been achieved in British Columbia and to discuss a path towards greater sustainability in Toronto.
A dialogue with John Honderich, Chair of Torstar’s Board of Directors, will follow Joel’s presentation.
