Sustainability Spotlight Webinar Series: Investing in Future Generations

About the Webinar Recording

Is improving the well-being of youth one of your organization’s objectives? If yes, how do you decide where to allocate your efforts and resources, and how to measure the impact that you are making on young people across Canada?

Scotiabank, Canada’s international bank, created an index tool using health and education indicators to better understand the challenges facing young people today. The Index is a tool to help bring youth practitioners together to improve or create policies, pinpoint problem areas and benchmark progress.

It’s also a platform to engage with partners in the youth space. Scotiabank recognizes that the long-term success in these areas depends on actions that are larger than any single organization. We must look at how we, as a collective society, can help move some of the Index’s indicators over the long-term in order to impact the future of the next generation.

In this Sustainability Spotlight Webinar Series: Investing in Future Generations, Scotiabank’s Director of Corporate Social Responsibility, Samantha Mesrobian will share key insights from the Index, as well as how Scotiabank will use the Index to inform and make funding decisions in the future.
