Professional Development

The RADIUS Fellowship is Metro Vancouver’s preeminent professional development opportunity for top emerging social innovators from across the region. During the intensive 4-month experience Fellows build relationships with their peers, develop personally and professionally, and tap into the broader social innovation and social entrepreneurship ecosystem

The RADIUS team has developed significant acumen in social innovation and design thinking. Our Custom Training and Consulting Services help professionals and institutions to apply principles in social innovation, design thinking and systems change to develop new ways of thinking and working in service of positive social change. 

The RADIUS Hub is a shared workspace in the Charles Chang Innovation Centre where social innovators and entrepreneurs can rent space, participate in learning opportunities and grow their network.
