The 2018 Entrepreneurial Feminist Forum


OCAD U's Faculty of Design Dean Dori Tunstall will be a guest speaker at The 2018 Entrepreneurial Feminist Forum.

"Entrepreneurial feminists" are transforming business and leading some of the most powerful changes in our communities.

Rooted in values that take good care of people and planet, we are building justice into products and services, operating models, and relationships. In the process, we are building collective power to change the economy.

LiisBeth and Feminists at Work hosted the first Entrepreneurial Feminist Forum at OCAD University in November 2017 with support from the City of Toronto, SheEO, Moxie Trades, and the Flourishing Business Model Canvas. 100+ feminists from Toronto and beyond shared stories, knowledge, and new tools. 

 

This year, we’re back at it with an expanded two-day program. Join us December 2-3, 2018 to explore feminist approaches to business design, product and service innovation, strategic planning, and more. We’re uplifting the voices of feminist business practitioners of all genders and identities.

​Workshops will be about learning and co-creating. We'll move during the day and leave room for emotion as well as intellect. Wild! Meet, get energized, and identify collaboration opportunities.

The future of business is what we make it, and it is most certainly feminist. Join us!
