Manitoba Learns workshops and capacity building opportunities seek to build knowledge within the core community organizations and social economy enterprises in our sector, by equipping individuals with the skills they need to thrive in their work.
This approach acknowledges that when individals are given access to opportunities to learn new skills and deepen their practice, the entire environment around them changes. It becomes stronger.
The topics in our Manitoba Learns series are identified in consultation and engagement with, and responsive to, our member, network, and sector needs.
Like many of our member organizations, social enterprises, and individual members, Manitoba Learns has pivoted our 2020 workshop schedule in response to Covid-19 and its impact on our work.
Collaboration and Community Leadership in Crisis will feature converastions and peer-to-peer learning opportunities to highlight and address the work happening in our sector, and our communities, addressing the current public health situation and paths to recovery.
Shifting Ground: CED & Advocacy Towards A Just Recovery
Wednesday, May 13, 2020
10:30 am - 12:00 pm
free virtual discussion delivered via Zoom
Some stores, restaurants and services are opening up in Manitoba. As more and more may open up, what does our new economic reality look like in this province? How can CED and your work contribute to a Just Recovery from COVID-19?
While we're still adapting to the crisis, we offer this Manitoba Learns online session to consider what comes next. Let's talk about CED and the New Normal that's on the horizon.
Communities are coming together already to make it happen. Let's discuss how we continue to come together to advocate for the necessary pieces of a just recovery.
What should our collective advocacy look like, and how can we make the biggest impact?
Join this virtual conversation as our sector pivots to consider CED, a Just Recovery and future policy action.
This conversation will be facilitated by Michael Barkman, CCEDNet Manitoba Public Policy Coordinator.
Learning and experiences will be encouraged from participants - though everyone is welcome to join the conversation.

10:30 am - 11:30 pm

This session will be delivered by CCEDNet Manitoba using Zoom.
Social enterprise has taken off as a new formula for success. Whether subsidized, self-funding or profitable, these initiatives combine business methods with a drive to better the world.
Blending financial goals with your mission for social, cultural or environmental impact is one of the most effective ways your organization can work towards financial stability while still feeling connected to your larger purpose.
Join us for a free 60 minute session of what social enterprise is (and isn’t), how it can help your organization work towards financial stability, and how to get one off the ground.
- Three social enterprise financial models
- Key exploration and development steps for starting or expanding your social enterprise
- How to assess your organization’s readiness and take the next step
If you would like to attend, please email Frank Atnikov at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive Zoom login details.
