EWB Toronto is a group of passionate professionals working to create systemic changes in Canada and in Africa by strategically engaging with key organizations and stakeholders. Started in 2007 by a group of young group professionals and former EWBers who recognized the potential of professional community in actively participating in the EWB’s vision of reducing global poverty, it has now grown into a formidable team of more than 20 dedicated leaders actively engaging the Toronto community through member learning and outreach events.
Each year, EWB Toronto reaches out to more than 1000 students and several chapter members have spent time overseas in Africa as part of EWB overseas program, including two past chapter presidents. The Chapter is currently in a phase of rapid growth and expansion to firmly place itself in the Toronto community as an influential change agent. A number of exciting chapter initiatives that are forthcoming in 2012 include the Run to End Poverty Campaign, National Engineering Month student outreach and partnerships with Fair Trade Toronto to make Toronto into a Fair Trade city.
We are actively partnered with organizations such as the Fair Trade Toronto, Mobiles without Borders, and the Professional Engineers of Ontario, as well as EWB student chapters including the University of Toronto chapter.
Now that you know who we are, it’s time to meet our Leadership Team!
