Theme: Leading Change and Inspiring Others

Indigenous Canadians have a goal of socio-economic parity with mainstream Canadians. Many leaders of organizations are adapting to a new reality while achieving their goals. This reality includes a focus on sustainability, diversity and inclusion, work-life balance and rapid technological changes to name a few. The gap between today’s reality and that of tomorrow requires individuals to ensure their leadership style can lead the change needed and inspire others to play a crucial role in attaining a common goal.
