Sock Guys, Social Enterprises & Social Innovation: Disabilities & Employment in a Pandemic

Presented by: Federation CJA, Ometz, L’Annexe, Miles Nadal JCC, UJA Federation of Greater Toronto

Learn more about the impact of disability social enterprise employment for neurodiverse young adults, families, and communities. Join us for a screening of Sock Guys, the award-winning documentary short about the father-son duo of John’s Crazy Socks who built and operated a business with a mission to spread happiness—and then succeeded at so much more.

Get inspired and watch the Sock Guys trailer here.

Join us alongside moderator Adam Greenberg in a live, candid panel discussion and Q&A with special guests from Montreal and Toronto, including a young adult, proud parent, and community social enterprise professionals. Our aim is to foster awareness, celebrate possibilities in a pandemic, and provide information on disability-focused social enterprises in our local communities.

Panelists include: Courtney Ayukawa, Nechama Dahan, Jeffrey Finkelstein and Rita Winkler. For the panel members’ bios click here.
