Drawn from the University of Regina’s tagline and inspired by a spirit of hope and compassion, it acknowledges that only through a collective spirit do we stand the best chance to succeed. Each of our 2024 featured speakers embodies that collective spirit in their own ways and are doing their part to change the world — and the role of women in it.
