Mohamed Huque

Mohamed has spent his entire career advancing social change, from grassroots organizations to global charities. He is presently the Director, Community Impact at Toronto Foundation where he mobilizes the organization’s vast philanthropic resources towards equity-driven priorities.

Previously, he was a strategy consultant advising some of the world’s leading NGOs on projects that ranged from supporting microenterprises in Afghanistan to establishing women-led co-operatives in Sudan. A former nonprofit executive, he’s also led an advocacy organization to develop Canada’s first national reading strategy, a research institute combating Islamophobia, and a frontline social service agency that supports low-income communities. At the heart of all his work has been a commitment to justice and equity to ensure those closest to any social problem are centred when designing solutions.

In 2015, he was selected to be an Ariane de Rothschild Fellow at the University of Cambridge, specializing in social entrepreneurship. Beyond Inspirit, he serves as Board Chair of Amnesty International Canada.
