Rethinking our thinking for a sustainable future
Canada | Toronto, Ontario
The “Rethinking our Thinking for a Sustainable Future” event was a day full of collaboration and meaningful learning. Participants at this “sold out” in-person event were challenged to rethink how they think about approaching complex challenges. The amazing array of multi-generational leaders attending Ivey’s Donald K. Johnson Center in Toronto included undergraduate and graduate students, managers and directors, innovators, administrators, as well as executives from the C-suite. Participants represented a diversity of sectors and disciplines including agriculture, entrepreneurship, finance, government, manufacturing and academia to name but a few. What they all had in common, however, was the desire to learn more about innovative, disruptive, and collaborative ways to create a sustainable future.
Ivey’s event in Toronto was timed to coincide with the international Estoril Conferences in Portugal at which leaders from business, government NGOs, media, and think tanks were gathered to take on the major global challenges facing us today. Ivey professor Tima Bansal was a featured speaker at the event hosted at our CEMS partner school–Nova School of Business & Economics. Ivey’s Dean Sharon Hodgson and Associate Dean Lyn Purdy were also engaged with other leaders and institutions who care deeply about the future–for the planet, for people and for peace.
