Panel Organized by: Dr. Wendy Cukier | Ryerson Diversity Institute

This panel will examine the current state of entrepreneurship, barriers that women and diverse groups face, and evidence-based strategies to drive change and the enablers to an inclusive innovation ecosystem at the macro, meso, and micro levels. The discussion will explore new methods making Canada’s innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem more inclusive for women and other under-represented groups as understanding the innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem is of growing importance to jurisdictions around the world. Panelists will also share new insights from the newly-formed the Women Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub (WEKH).
