For 20 years, EWB Canada and its chapters have pushed for equality and the elimination of poverty through systemic changes in the areas of business, policy change, and leadership development. As systems thinkers, we know that issues are not one-dimensional; when we try to reach for quick, band-aid solutions, we aren’t preventing the same problems from popping up in the future.
The fact of the matter is — If we continue to ignore root causes, we will only continue to create more problems. That is why EWB Chapters work to address systemic issues across a number of areas by applying our core values through systems thinking.
As a collective, we work to meet and surpass our goals through focusing on five main commitments and advance EWB’s mission and vision as a national community:
- Anti-Oppression & Identity Based Equity
- Equitable Access to Healthcare
- Environmental Sustainability
- Economic & Food Systems Security
- Reconciliation (Canada & Abroad)
Through these commitments we advocate for better policies, develop globally minded leaders, and strengthen purpose-driven businesses. We believe that, at the intersection of these activities, there is a real chance to create a sustainable and inclusive global economy and contribute to an economic future that is equitable and sustainable for all.
