We are now accepting applications for this year's virtual Learning to Lead program open to Grade 11 girls, transgender, and non-binary youth across BC. This year, we are growing the program to invite 200 amazing young leaders to join us for five sessions of learning, connecting, and growth. Visit our program page for more information. The deadline to apply is April 9, but we encourage applicants to submit their applications early.

What's in store for 2021

Here are a few of the programs and events we have lined up over the next few months:

  • Expand Learning to Lead™ to welcome an additional 50 young leaders into the program
  • Deliver Women Leading the Way™ in a new blended online format
  • Host a LIFT Speakers Series featuring short virtual events to facilitate important conversations that redefine leadership
  • Launch an Emerging Leaders Program designed for aspiring and early career leaders
  • Provide thought leadership and continue to lend our voice and expertise to accelerate change
  • Hold virtual learning events during Gender Equality Week through an Inclusive Leadership Forum, as well as virtual regional workshops in Kamloops and Prince George
