CEP November Event - Community Investment
Time & Location
About The Event
We are excited to have two amazing organizations speaking at CEP Calgary on November 8!
CAWST and Benevity will be joining us as the speakers for our November event on Community Investment & Sustainability.
Benevity is the global leader in online workplace giving, matching, volunteering and integrated grant management solutions. They are also a registered B Corp, "...which means we are formally committed to a higher standard of using the power of business to solve social and environmental challenges. We have a vision to improve the social and business returns companies receive from their investments in employee and consumer giving and volunteering and, simultaneously, to build and strengthen our society."
Some of the world’s most iconic brands rely on Benevity’s award-winning solutions to power their Goodness Programs and corporate philanthropy, helping them attract, retain and engage today’s workers by connecting people personally to causes that matter to them. With almost 2 million users around the world, Benevity will process donations for more than 100,000 global charities this year. As a certified B Corporation, Benevity is part of a unique breed of for-profit companies with a social mission who believe that ‘doing well by doing good’ is more than just a catchy tagline. Benevity was one of the first B Corps in Canada, having been first certified in 2011, and we continue to attract like-minded people who want to work hard and leave the world better than they found it.
CAWST teaches people how to get safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene in their own homes, using simple, affordable technologies. They have helped reach 15.4 million people with better water or sanitation, since inception in 2001.
CAWST is a Canadian charity and licensed engineering firm. We address the global need for safe drinking water and sanitation by building local knowledge and skills on household solutions people can implement themselves. We were founded in 2001.
***Paula Blackmore White***
Paula is a coach and teacher at heart with addictions to learning, competitive sports, and [insta]gramming her wiener dogs. Insatiably curious and a life-long improviser, Paula loves to spark learning around her and likes nothing better than a good a-ha moment.
Paula is Benevity’s People Development Lead, and facilitates the learning and development of a fast growing team that is infusing the world with goodness and changing how people and companies give back to their local and global communities.
Paula’s path to Benevity started on a pool deck, coaching and training high performance athletes for Canada and the US. Paula then transitioned her leadership and people development skills into the non-spandex phase of her career by taking on management and training roles for some of the most iconic brands including lululemon and Apple.
When Paula isn’t igniting curiosity for Benevity-ites you can find her volunteering, or road biking (spandex is never really that for from her life), or eating guacamole.
Tal Woolsey has been involved with CAWST since its inception, eventually joining CAWST as a staff member in 2004 to provide training and consulting services for CAWST clients in Africa. Tal brings his extensive experience in WASH to CAWST. Prior to joining the CAWST team, Tal co-founded Clean Water For Haiti, an organization with which he designed and implemented household water treatment and sanitation projects in Haiti. At CAWST, Tal continues to provide comprehensive training and consulting support throughout Africa. He is also the Relationship Manager for CAWST's WET Centres in Ethiopia and Zambia.
