The Banff Social Innovation Residency is an innovative new leadership program being offered through partnership between the Banff Centre and the Waterloo Institute of Social Innovation and Resilience (WISIR) and sponsored by Suncor Energy Foundation. This program combines WISIR’s expertise in social innovation with the Banff Centre’s programming and uses the arts, reflective practices and indigenous traditions to build individuals’ leadership capacities.
Archipelago Consultants have been the primary developmental evaluators on this project since its inception, acting in support of the design team and providing an evaluation of the impacts for all three main project partners. This role involves observing meetings, interviewing participants, measuring impacts, reporting on patterns and trends.
