February is Black History Month, and we’re partnering with McMaster Innovation Park to celebrate business and culture in Hamilton’s Black community. 

In today’s episode, meet Leo Nupolu Johnson, Executive Director of Empowerment Squared. This local organization is dedicated to supporting newcomers through the education system. Leo has a fascinating story to share about his own journey to Canada and why he’s now helping kids find the support they need. 

Listen in to hear about Leo’s partnership with the UN, his thoughts around the idea of donation vs. investment, and the importance of lived experience in organization programming. Such an amazing episode you don’t want to miss!

Stay tuned for the rest of the month as we continue sharing Black points of view, and thanks to McMaster Innovation Park for making this all possible!
