Ryerson Women in Leadership's annual conference is here!
This year's theme is "Power Moves".

Power moves focuses on the steps and decisions an individual makes in their life that allows them to achieve their dreams, aspirations, and goals. They take on many forms: academia, entrepreneurship, career choices, strategic connections, social causes, to name a few. These moves could even be the smallest of decisions which propels you into a realm of growth, provides empowerment, creates opportunities, and ultimately leads you to the life you’ve envisioned. Let's make that move!

Our renowned conference features incredible speakers who will be taking part in keynote addresses, workshops, a discussion panel and a networking session. Our guest speakers are from diverse disciplines, careers, and experiences in order to convey perspectives that can be applied to numerous areas of leadership.

The conference will be taking place at The Globe and Mail Centre - 351 King Street East, Suite 1600, 17th Floor Toronto ON M5A 0N1.

Registration will begin at 9:00am. Event concludes at 6:00pm.

"Turning Setbacks into Comebacks"

Along a person's career path, it is common to run into setbacks and obstacles along the way. It is how we approach these challenges and our ability to turn them around that determines whether an obstacle can become an opportunity. The ability to change one's point view and see a challenge as a hidden opportunity is a skill that can be used in many areas of one’s life.

"The Power of Connections"

Networking and forming connections is a large part of today’s society and notably the workforce. Understanding the tools to properly network and using it to your advantage can be a powerful skill in one’s career. People require the know-how on how create connections as well as how to cultivate and grow already established relationships so that they may be beneficial in the future. How do we connect and grow our network? And how do we maintain our current connections with industry professionals and our social network?

“Brand: YOU”

A social media presence is essential to networking, stay relevant and keeping informed. What is your brand? How do people see or perceive you? For now and in the future, it is crucial to develop your personal brand as you progress from being a student to a professional. While developing one’s professional online presence, how can one also maintain their right to self-expression?

“Success and Self-Care”

Becoming successful leaders comes with knowing when to prioritize self care. Whether it’s stepping back and ask for help, or more importantly safeguarding your mental health. It is about understanding that “Bosses” still require down time to refresh, refocus and re-energize.
