This month our guest is Jason Ribeiro, a corporate leader, community advocate, international consultant, and one of Canada’s most awarded social science graduate students. As Director of Strategy at Calgary Economic Development, Jason was responsible for setting and implementing corporate and community vision through the city’s economic strategy, “Calgary in the New Economy.” His current Ph.D. research, which is funded by the prestigious SSHRC Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship at the University of Calgary, aims to assist organizational leaders in shaping, leading, and sustaining innovation efforts in cross-sector partnerships. He is an active member of the international academic community, and has taught over 600 university students, written 14 scholarly works, delivered over 20 national/international conference presentations, and received over $190,000 in competitive funding. He also holds a Master’s degree from Brock University and undergraduate degrees from both McMaster University and York University.

Jason is committed to improving the lives and well-being of Calgarians, Albertans, and Canadians across the country and has represented Canada at the World Bank/IMF Annual Meetings, United Nations Peacekeeping Defence Ministerial, and Young Leaders Program of Atlantik-Brücke. He recently served as Curator of the World Economic Forum Global Shapers Calgary Hub for the 2019-2020 year. A passionate leader, Jason currently sits on boards and standing committees within Sport Calgary, ActiveCITY Calgary, EducationMatters, and the Calgary Public Library. He is a regular fixture in local and national media providing public affairs commentary on policy and politics.

We will be asking Jason about how Calgary can make a just transition to the post-carbon economy.
