Women in Leadership session to discuss conference calls to action

Brock University’s Women in Leadership (WIL) group wants to continue conversations on campus that began at a national conference earlier this year.

The University was well represented at the virtual Senior Women Academic Administrators of Canada (SWAAC) conference in May. Brock’s next Women in Leadership meeting, held online Wednesday, July 28 from 1 to 2 p.m., aims to carry on the conference discussions, while also introducing those who were unable to attend to the key takeaways.

The group will also discuss how some calls to action inspired by the conference can be implemented at Brock.

The theme of this year’s SWAAC conference was trust. Descriptions of keynotes and plenaries as well as speaker bios can be found here. Ingrid Makus, Dean of Brock’s Faculty of Social Sciences, received the Angela Hildyard Recognition Award for Influential Leaders at the event.

A previous SWAAC conference inspired the creation of Brock’s WIL initiative, and subsequent conferences have prompted additional conversations and activities.

All are invited to participate in this conversation to learn from one another and to consider actions for positive change that can be implemented within the Brock and wider communities.

Details on this and other upcoming sessions, including dates, descriptions and login details are available on the Women in Leadership website.

Women in Leadership aims to support women in formal and informal leadership positions and encourage the next generation of potential women leaders. All women and allies are invited to attend.

Individuals are welcome to join the WIL channel on Microsoft Teams or to contact Jeannie Mackintosh to be added to the WIL email distribution list.
