12:0pm - 1:00pm (lunch included)
Murdo Scribe Centre (510 Selkirk Ave, Winnipeg)
This session will provide an overview of social impact bonds, a topic that is generating a lot of chatter in the community due to the Government of Manitoba's commitment to implement them. What are SIBs? What are the motivations for SIBs, and the assumptions they make about government and non-profit service providers? What are the opportunities and challenges?
Jesse Hajer, Breakwater Group, PhD candidate on SIBs at New School for Social Research (New York).
