Webcast: Climate & Equity Lab Results – 5 levers for change

July 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


In 2023, Gore Mutual Foundation Launched the Climate & Equity Lab in partnership with Social Innovation Canada and York University.  A series of research labs were launched to gain a better understanding of how climate change is impacting the most vulnerable populations in Canadian urban centers.  The Labs explored options for the right solutions to mitigate that impact.

Through this work, Gore Mutual found there is a unique opportunity to look at the interconnection among poverty, equity and climate change.  The Labs created an understanding of how the impacts of climate change are already being felt, and will continue to impact Canada’s most vulnerable community members in urban environments, including the increasing number of  Canadians who are deemed “uninsurable”.

“This partnership took a year to come together, and we know that these are the right partners for The Climate and Equity Lab. Our partners share the same values, urgency, and vision to make our findings public and inspire others to take action alongside us. We are thrilled to embark on this journey together, ” said Gaby Polanco Sorto, VP & Head of Purpose and Sustainability at Gore Mutual Insurance Company.

With Phase 1 of the Climate & Equity Lab complete, a White Paper will be released related to the findings, as well as the identification of 5 Levers of Change.

This Webinar will provide you with:

1) an overview of the work of the Climate & Equity Lab,

2) the results of the Lab’s Phase 1 including the identified 5 Levers of Change, and

3) what can be expected from the work of Phase 2, which will be launched in Fall, 2024.
