It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the International Women’s Day Summit which will be held on March 7-8, 2019, in Ottawa Ontario. The event is organized by Elevate International in collaboration with the University of Ottawa, Willis College and Kind Village.
Our objective is to advance women’s leadership and economic empowerment. The International Women’s Leadership Summit focuses on:
This initiative is aligned with Canada’s commitment to encourage an increase number of women in senior decision-making positions in Canada.
The leadership summit is a jam packed 2-day event that is designed to empower the workforce through education and the advancement of inclusive, responsible and effective leadership. There will be thought provoking speakers to spark constructive dialogue amongst private, public and not-for profit sectors.
Unorthodox and stimulating, in addition to elevating your leadership development, this leadership forum will invite each participant to do a bit of work through targeted workshops that are focused on empowerment and self-leadership to advance gender diversity in our leadership capacity.
As you know, in today’s political, economic, and global business environment, diversity has become increasingly important. While many leaders and stakeholders have been advocating for gender diversity, it remains a challenge in our society and on many corporate agendas.
This year, Elevate Women’s theme is “Making Progress”, focusing on education, responsible and inclusive leadership; we are challenging ourselves to have constructive dialogues as Canadians on where we are today, and then taking realistic steps on how we are going to move forward by making a greater commitment to towards advancing gender diversity in senior decision-making positions and gender equity in Canadian companies.
The leadership summit includes thought leaders, forward thinkers and visionaries on gender diversity, executive leadership training, mentoring and high level networking.
