  • CANCELLED: 3rd Annual Conclave on Innovation co-hosted by South Asian Business Association (SABA) and India Innovation Institute (III)

    Conference | Networking Event | Panel Discussion

    -

    THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
    This year’s SABA Conclave is focused on the idea of disruption in business.

    In a world where every facet of business is ever changing and evolving to embrace new technologies and data, we explore three areas of interest to the South Asian economy and how industry leaders are helping steer their companies in the right direction. We aim to enable a forum of discussion where we talk about businesses and interests that didn’t exist five years ago - but which are thriving now. We hope to provide a detailed view of what may come next.

    Join us for a can't miss event where we will answer these three tough questions: What will the payments industry look like next? What is social innovation, and why is it important now? Is the Indian economy slowing down or simply dormant before another era of explosive growth?

  • CANCELLED: Expert Discussion on “Transitioning Employers: A Survey of Policies and Practices for Trans Inclusive Workplaces”

    Speaker Series | Panel Discussion

    -

    THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. In Canada, organizations across sectors have recently begun to acknowledge and attempt to address disparities faced by transgender and gender non conforming people through a variety of trans inclusion practices and policies such as washroom retrofitting, employee resource groups, mentorship programs and targeted hiring. In 2019, Pride at Work Canada and The Institute for Gender at the Economy at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, partnered to conduct the first trans inclusion workplace policies audit across Canada’s large employers, making use of Pride at Work Canada’s partner network. The results show that large employers are taking some of the first steps towards basic accommodations but still have gaps in providing truly inclusive workplaces.

    The event will focus on launching the report—”Transitioning Employers: A survey of policies and practices for trans inclusive workplaces”— in a panel with community and corporate partners about the impact of trans policies in the workplace. The evening will conclude with a lively networking reception provided by The Institute for Gender at the Economy.
