They envision a more inclusive and pluralist Canada where their differences are valued and engaged, and everyone has an equal opportunity to thrive both socially and economically.
They work to promote inclusion and pluralism through media and arts, support for young change leaders and impact investing—specifically addressing discrimination based on ethnicity, race and religion.
There are a number of exceptional funding opportunities and community-based organizations supporting the engagement of young people from historically marginalized communities. Inspirit recognizes these individuals sometimes lack access to professional networks, generational wealth, and, at times, formal education, which is why it’s important they focus on a changemaking approach rather than a charity model. They do this by leveraging their resources to help develop connected, effective, and influential leaders. In so doing, they help create the conditions where change leaders embarking on important work to accelerate inclusion can flourish beyond granting program parameters.
