Executive Director, Institute for a Resource-Based Economyhttp://www.zwc.ca/archive/2016/speakers/Ryan DymentExecutive Director, Institute for a Resource-Based Economy<div class="ExternalClass4B4AA37D067144A5B144EF0CB2DF84F3"><p>Ryan is a Chartered Accountant who worked in the fields of accounting and finance for eight years before becoming the Executive Director of the Institute for a Resource-Based Economy (IRBE). Since 2013, IRBE has expanded its programming and now manages 4 Tool Libraries, a Makerspace and its newest venture, the Sharing Depot, Canada's first Library of Things. The programs accept donations of lightly used items (6,000 inventory items and counting) and loan them to over 3,000 members who pay small annual membership fees. With over 60 volunteers supporting the programs, the Tool Library, Sharing Depot and Makerspace are truly community hubs that encourage access over ownership to reduce waste and share the abundance that already exists in Toronto.</p></div>http://www.zwc.ca/archive/2016/speakers/SpeakerPhotos/RyanDyment.jpg, Ryan DymentGP0|#f40a5200-611f-46b0-9cb7-200fb7ce7079;L0|#0f40a5200-611f-46b0-9cb7-200fb7ce7079|Ryan Dyment;GTSet|#c31bcefc-bba8-4775-8a91-82f54b19d6e1;GPP|#a957a61d-489a-4511-b008-3b138e771d18
