The COVID-19 pandemic has had an immense and disproportionate impact on historically underrepresented groups like communities of colour, women and people with disabilities. It has also amplified the systemic challenges these communities face, such as racism, poverty and gender inequality.
In this session, a panel of entrepreneurs and business advocates will share the impact the pandemic has had on their community as well as their perspective on what an inclusive economic recovery looks like. Their stories will shed light on how we can each respond as an ally to the businesses, organizations and people around us.

There’s over $7.5B spent on community / social programs in Edmonton alone and the outcomes aren’t quite what we would have expected for that level of investment. In addition, there’s a great opportunity to lead on social justice and create a model that’s replicable globally.
We believe that we can leverage entrepreneurship, technology, data, AI/ML, mentorship, funding, domain partners to finally help devise and deploy workable solutions that can not only deliver better outcomes but more importantly, make a real difference in the lives of our citizens and help our entrepreneurs scale the solutions globally. Technology can help deliver better outcomes!
This is our chance to do Good, Deliver Better Outcomes and Create Scalable Companies and for Alberta to lead the world in Community Safety and Wellness Solutions.
Thank you to the Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute (Amii) for sponsoring the AI/ML track as part of Edmonton Startup Week.
