Reimagining Leadership: Portraits of Courage

Thursday, March 2, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

St. John's Convention Centre, 50 New Gower St.

Women’s leadership is not a women’s issue – it’s an issue for us all. Characterized by emotional intelligence and ethical decision-making, women’s leadership is essential for the well-being of society.

The word courage is derived from the Latin noun cor, meaning “heart”. It takes strength of heart to be vulnerable, to live authentically and to develop a strong sense of purpose. Each of us has a reservoir of courage that runs deep in our heart, just waiting to be discovered.

With the theme of courage, we are certain this year’s conference will stir strength that participants didn’t know they had.

Speakers

We are thrilled to let you know that this year’s keynote speakers include activist and advocate, Elizabeth Smart, Indigenous fashion designer, Sage Paul, and world champion Olympian, Perdita Felicien!

Newfoundland and Labrador panel

Once again, the Newfoundland and Labrador panel is sure to ignite passion and action. Leila Beaudoin (BA’09) will host, along with a dynamic trio of panellists: Innu educator, Kanani Davis (B.Ed.(Native and Northern)’09), entrepreneur and Memorial University PhD candidate, Christine Goudie, and community activist Dr. Zainab Jerrett (PhD’98).

Musical entertainment

Attendees will spree with Nigerian singer and songwriter, Ife Alaba, seasoned veteran of stage and screen, Michelle Doyle (B.Mus.’98), Canada’s first Inuk professional classical singer and award-winning performer, Deantha Edmunds, and St. John’s, Newfoundland-based folk trio, Flower Hill.
