Anne Jamieson

Anne Jamieson recently retired from United Way Greater Toronto and now engages in freelance work in the social enterprise sector. 


While at United Way, Anne ran the Toronto Enterprise Fund for almost 20 years, where she developed a robust curriculum and set of tools to support the start-up, stabilization, and scale-up of employment social enterprises. 


Among these is the Business Cost Recovery methodology of identifying and separating social costs from business costs, and measuring sustainability: the focus of Anne’s presentation.
