CSI Members in the Media: Alex Gill’s predictions for 2018

Alex Gill is a long-time CSI member. He also wears many hats (co-founder, Social Innovator in Residence, and Director) at Ryerson’s social business incubator the SocialVentures Zone. In 2015, he was named one of Canada’s “Social Justice All-Stars” by THIS Magazine.

Alex was recently featured in Ryeron’s alumni newsletter The Ryerson Connection:

“In 2017 we saw a range of social issues that we have treated as “normal” for too long come into a new and critical focus. This trend will continue at the same rapid pace in 2018, and my hope is that issues we have dismissed as too complex and intractable to address (homelessness, anyone?) may get an infusion of new thinking and momentum for real change.”
