Conference 2017

Speakers 2016 

The 2017 RWIL Conference will be the third annual Ryerson Women in Leadership Conference. This year will be revolutionary with great new initiatives being launched as part of the Ryerson Women in Leadership plan for the 2016-2017 year. Expanding the existing University Women in Leadership Network (UWILN) and improving our General Member program that was launched just last year are two such initiatives that will play a key role in taking our annual conference to the next level. Additionally, this conference would host the first-ever RWIL Case Competition for delegates to compete for.


This year, the Ryerson Women in Leadership Conference will be expanding to a two-day event. The conference would take place near the week of International Women’s Day thus will be held on March 3 – 4, 2017 at the Court Yard by Marriot.  The conference venue will most likely be held at a hotel venue due to the extended duration of the conference as well as showcase parts of Ryerson University and downtown Toronto.  

Our group is set out to better represent not only RWIL, but Ryerson, as an innovative environment where new angles and opportunities are repeatedly taken into consideration.  The speakers, workshops, seminars, speeches and ultimately the case competition will revolve around the concept of embracing one’s self and using that to expand their potential whilst learning from accomplished leaders who come from a large variety of professional fields, have varying personal backgrounds and can share their impeccable stories.


To sum it up in one phrase, this conference hopes to highlight: “How the power of one’s voice can become the force in building their future.” This conference will be a celebration of individuality, confidence, purpose, intersectionality, and most importantly, voice.
