Business is a Force for Good
Come and learn about how to integrate social change into your business from our expert speaker.
Speaker: Kristi Rivait with Scale Collaborative
Business provides a powerful opportunity to address community and social challenges and be a force for good while making profit.
Kristi Rivait brings 10+ years of executive level experience as a social entrepreneur. Kristi was the Director of Fund Development for Vision Vancouver before the 2008 elections where she learnt what it took to build capacity necessary to scale. From 2010-2014, Kristi was the Executive Director of Oaklands Community Centre where she increased staff salaries by 25%, purchased real estate, started a successful social enterprise and doubled the organization’s budget.
It was at this point that Kristi co-founded Scale. Social change organizations must diversify their operational budgets to be effective and Kristi coaches leaders on how best to accomplish this. Kristi brings years of experience managing cross sector partnerships in reaching common goals, from local campaigns to national level networks.
Kristi will speak about the ways both not for profit and businesses create change and integrate social change into their business. Kristi will also touch upon new social impact business and the opportunities for social impact investment on Vancouver Island.
