The Jane Jacobs Prize is an annual award that celebrates individuals who contribute to the fabric of Toronto life in unique ways that exemplify the ideas of Jane Jacobs. Anne Gloger, C3's Principal received the award for co-creating the Connected Community Approach which exemplifies the Jane Jacobs belief "that people had the right to self-determination and to create the kind of neighbourhood they wanted,” and develops strategies to support that belief.
Anne Gloger was awarded the David Crombie City Builder Award from the Canadian Urban Institute in 2018 for her leadership role in the creation of East Scarborough Storefront and the Centre for Connected Communities, organizations that enable and support community-identified and community-led solutions to local problems and place based systems change. C3's unique Connected Community Approach was recognized as an important contribution to strengthening the City's social fabric.
The Courage to Lead Award is presented each year to a person who encourages facilitative leadership in their communities. The Connected Communities Approach encourages, supports and provides tools for facilitative leadership in community and city building. Anne Gloger, the East Scarborough Storefront and the Centre for Connected Communities were the 2017 recipients of this award.
