2018 ICC Fellowship kicked off at 6 Degrees Toronto
Last week, the 2018 cohort of ICC Fellows kicked off their fellowship term by presenting their projects at 6 Degrees Toronto. The ICC Fellowship provides a special opportunity for young leaders to foster change and inclusion in their communities. At 6 Degrees Toronto, the 2018 ICC Fellows met with leaders, thinkers, and doers in this space, who provided the fellows with invaluable advice and mentorship. You can read more about the fellows and their projects, and follow their journey here.

Thank you!
Thank you to everyone who attended, volunteered at, or helped spread the word about 6 Degrees Toronto. Your involvement in this year’s event was integral to its success.  It was a great three days of conversation, ideas, and action with 45 leaders from around the world, and more than 500 participants. The ICC looks forward to continuing the conversation at 6 Degrees Berlin on November 12! To see highlights from 6 Degrees Toronto and for more information about 6 Degrees Berlin, visit

“I think the CAP [card] is a fantastic idea. We have been to several concerts with our free tickets from CAP and went to Banff National Park,” says Shandra, “I plan to visit the Bell Music Centre, TELUS Spark and Fort Calgary in the near future. I love art and museums: they teach about the diversity of our cultures and the history that formed this country. They also provide a chance to learn from past mistakes and ensure that Indigenous culture survives.” Learn more about CAP member Shandra Weber in this month’s CAP Spotlight, written by her.
