The Butterfly Effect Team
Humber ORI: The 2022 BE Challenge top-ranked finalists and special award recipients are selected

Simple, ingenious employee solutions make a big impact!

Humber’s Office of Research & Innovation (ORI) ran an inclusive innovation program for front-line employees over the summer and fall of 2022. ORI is pleased to announce that, following evaluation by an independent judging panel and review from Ginger Grant, PhD., Dean of Research and Innovation, the top-ranked finalists and special award recipients of the 2022 Butterfly Effect (BE) Challenge have been selected.

Note that, collectively these (often simple) solutions have resulted in annual savings of more than $150,000 of costs, almost 2.5 years of employee time, and the equivalent of two 45-foot mature pine trees worth of paper. The members of these ingenious teams will also be sharing their solutions with other employees to multiply their impact.

Top-ranked finalists:

  • First place: Streamlining Indigenous Student Residence Applications
  • Second place: QR Code for Lakeshore campus map
  • Third place (tie):
    • Upgrading Webchat PowerPoints to Run Automatically
    • QRevolution (QR Codes for Office of Sustainability Info)

The BE Challenge team will be presenting the awards to the top-ranked finalists and special innovation award recipients in February. 

About the Butterfly Effect Challenge:

The BE Challenge seeks to discover and celebrate Humber College’s front-line innovators. The Challenge looks for simple, low-cost or no-cost integration and/or automation solutions that have already been implemented by Humber’s support staff and non-managerial administrative staff. The solutions can improve both on-campus and remote work arrangements.

Humber’s front-line colleagues are continuously improving the Humber experience, but their ideas and solutions often remain hidden in plain sight. This initiative is part of a broader Inclusive Research & Innovation training program the Humber Office of Research & Innovation (ORI) has been piloting. ORI staff have been trained in the principles and processes of Inclusive Innovation, and they launched and managed The 2022 Butterfly Effect Challenge over the summer and fall.

Please reach out to the Humber Office of Research & Innovation team at if you’re interested in learning more about the BE Challenge.

Mami Wata, 2020, digital mixed media by Yung Yemi

Humber Galleries, in partnership with Humber’s Black Heritage 365 Committee, presents an artwork installation by Yung Yemi as part of Humber’s Black Heritage Month Celebration beginning on February 1.

Humber Galleries worked with the City of Toronto to bring Yung Yemi’s artwork to Humber Lakeshore for Nuit Blanche last October and is excited to bring another series of work by the artist to North Campus. The installation in the Learning Resource Commons will feature four large scale digital mixed media works which will be on display throughout the months of February and March.

About Yung Yemi

Adeyemi Adegbesan is a Toronto-based multi-disciplinary artist whose practice aims to examine the intersectionality of Black identity. Reflecting on Black cultural ideologies from pre-colonial, colonial, present day and future timelines; across regions, religions, varying levels of income and political lines, Adegbesan examines the dichotomy of the richness of Black experiences with the imposed societal homogeneity of ‘Blackness’. Through his work Adegbesan pulls from these varying elements to create Afro-futuristic portraits that embody themes of history, fantasy, speculative futures, and spirituality.

Adeyemi is a self-taught artist whose practice incorporates photography, mixed media collage, murals and assemblage. He works out of his studio in Toronto’s Kensington Market neighborhood and has shown work in Canada and the United States. He has also worked with brands such as HBO, Instagram, and the Toronto Raptors on commercial collaborations.

Date & location:

When: February 1 – March 31, 2023
Where: Learning Resource Commons, North Campus
Cost: Free
