The Board of Directors of Social and Enterprise Development Innovations (SEDI) congratulates Peter Nares, founding Executive Director, for being selected by Ashoka as a Senior Fellow for his innovative work in socioeconomic development in Canada. Each year, Ashoka, a global organization that accelerates social change by identifying and investing in leading social entrepreneurs, recognizes a handful of individuals for their innovative solutions to societyís most urgent problems.
For over 20 years, Nares and SEDI, a national non-profit organization, have developed programs to help disadvantaged Canadians achieve self-sufficiency. Under Naresí leadership, SEDIís initiatives have helped shape Canadaís social policies in the areas of self-employment, financial literacy and asset-building.
To celebrate and support SEDIís life-changing programs, join community and business leaders at the SEDI Awards at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto, November 13, 2008.
