À propos de nous

À propos de nous

L'île que nous appelons «Montréal» est connue sous le nom de Tiotia: ke à Kanien'keháka, un endroit qui a longtemps servi de lieu de rencontre et d'échange entre les nations autochtones. Le Hub de Montréal des Global Shapers a débuté il y a 4 ans. De nos humbles débuts, nous avons aujourd'hui grandi avec près de 20 jeunes professionnels exceptionnels qui sont des leaders émergents et accomplis dans les secteurs public, privé et de la société civile.

Nous sommes fiers de dire que nos membres et nos projets visent à refléter la diversité de la ville que nous appelons Montréal et qu'en tant qu'optimistes impatients, nous travaillons sans relâche pour relever les défis locaux, régionaux et mondiaux. En particulier, notre centre est engagé sur trois thèmes: la lutte contre la discrimination, l'intégration des réfugiés et l'autonomisation des femmes.

Plus récemment, notre priorité à l'inclusivité nous a amenés à être choisis pour le Défi de l'avenir de Shapers My Shapers de Global Shapers. Nous attendons avec impatience de présenter notre proposition de AI inclusive au Sommet Global Shapers de 2018 à Genève .

Projets

Project Inclusion

The City of Montreal has a long way to go in improving accessibility for differently abled people. This project aims to map the accessibility across Montreal neighbourhoods and boroughs using an app called AccessNow. Since this app is available free of charge on all major platforms, it can also serve as a tool to educate Montrealais and Montréalaise about universal accessibility.

Inclusive AI

This project is part of the Global Shapers’ #ShapingMyCitysFuture challenge. It aims to to shape the growth of AI in Montreal in a more inclusive, ethical and responsible manner. In particular, this project will aim to develop a 4th Industrial Revolution Inclusivity Index (4iRII) that will rank cities based on their inclusivity towards traditionally marginalized stakeholders.

Shoulder to Shoulder

Systemic discrimination continues to exist in Montreal. This project aims to promote understanding and allyship amongst various equity seeking groups. In particular, this project uses art as a platform to unite groups through a series of monthly gatherings. Subsequently, workshops will be held to initiate co-creation of solutions around commonly identified social inclusion barriers faced by members of these communities.

Refugee Integration

Montreal is a sanctuary city. However, one of the biggest obstacles for refugees is finding a first job. This project aims to bring together relevant stakeholders in the public and private sectors to set up a CV clinic and job fair for Canadian newcomers. It also aims to educate Canadian businesses on the advantages of hiring refugees, including access to government grant programs.

Women Empower

Financial empowerment is a means to female empowerment. This project aims to target female newcomer to Canada (particularly between the ages of 30-50 years) to improve their understanding of financial options and services and increase the use of those services; bolster their confidence when it comes to financial/economic matters; and highlight examples of role models who are financially empowered women.

Applications for the 2018-2019 cohort for the Montreal Hub of the Global Shapers Community are now OPEN.

Deadline: Monday October 1, 2018 at 11:59PM
