TED Circles are held monthly. They are a free, safe and inclusive online place to connect with innovators from all over the globe.

In Canada, the process of reconciliation is tied to the federal government's relationship with Indigenous peoples. As we innovate with new solutions involving AI, IoT and other disruptive technologies post-pandemic, we will need to ensure the solutions are built with everyone's needs in mind. Let's meet and discuss:

  1. Why reconcile and how?
  2. How are reconciliation and innovation linked?
  3. What's next?
