How Nick Petten started their logo design journey

Company name

Waterloo Institute for Social Innovation and Resilience (WISIR)

Overview

The Waterloo Institute for Social Innovation and Resilience (WISIR) is an academic institution based at the University of Waterloo.

Our mission:

Our mission is to generate new knowledge about social innovations and the social innovation process in Canada through research. In particular, we seek to understand more deeply the dynamics of learning, adaptation and innovation for the purpose of enhancing resilience.

We will seek to disseminate new knowledge to academics, policy makers, practitioners, and organizations (especially those in the social sector) through a range of publications and also design and deliver learning opportunities, including graduate programs, workshops and lecture series.

We are strongly committed to ongoing collaboration across disciplines, institutions and sectors, with the belief that non-traditional partnerships are necessary to achieve the mission as described above. Whenever possible, partnerships will be developed in order to leverage and share resources of intellectual, social, human and financial capital since we believe that, together, we can achieve more than the sum of what we could achieve alone.
