Dinner in honour of Bill Gates

June 27, 2016


On February 25, 2015, Global Canada brought together a select group of global-minded Canadians for a unique dinner discussion with Bill Gates.

Our dinner conversation revolved around the impact that Canada – and Canadians – can have on the world. More specifically, we discussed how building a community of global citizens and creating synergies among a broad spectrum of stakeholders can bring about tangible and meaningful change.

We were extremely grateful to welcome Bill Gates to this conversation. Through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Mr. Gates has become a champion of the global citizen movement and a true leader in the fight against poverty, poor health, and inadequate education. He has shown that, through strategic partnerships with like-minded organizations, real change can happen.

In addition to Bill Gates, our event brought together over 25 Canadian CEOs from a variety of sectors, as well as several civil society leaders and major philanthropists, all of whom share an interest in enhancing Canada’s role on the global stage.
