We are excited to be back in person and virtually for the 13th annual University of Regina’s Inspiring Leadership Forum 2022 presented by TD! Space is limited and tickets are now available for the March 2, 2022 event. 

The Inspiring Leadership Forum is a premier leadership development event that is focused on women in leadership. It’s about leadership – the challenges we face, the strengths we possess, our resilience and compassion, and the common experiences that tie us together. This Forum brings people together from Saskatchewan and beyond to connect with others through the inspirational stories of internationally renowned leaders. 

“The topic of women’s leadership will always be relevant. Equitable, diverse, and inclusive workplaces is our desired state. While progress has been made, we are not there yet,” says Pam Klein, Chair of the Forum and Chancellor of the University of Regina. “Personally, I am in the continual pursuit of learning and evolving in leadership. With ongoing dialogue we fuel our emerging leaders and strengthen the economic and social environment. The discussion may not be the same over time, however, it must continue.”

This year’s theme, Happy on Purpose, inspires us to choose joy. When faced with challenges, a focus on happiness can help pull us through dark times, making us stronger and more resilient now and in the future.

“Each year the committee discusses topics that matter, are timely, and will inspire and inform. We live in challenging times with issues and circumstances that may overwhelm people,” says Klein. “It was time to share stories and tools and resources that may help us care for ourselves in a compassionate manner. Through our speakers and personal shared experiences we will be ‘Happy on Purpose’.”

The March 2 Forum will feature three 60-minute keynote presentations, each followed by a Q&A session, from our three highly-anticipated keynote speakers who will join us live:

  • Jenn Harper, Social Entrepreneur, Founder and CEO of Cheekbone Beauty
  • Colette Carlson, Human Behavior Expert, Founder of Speak Your Truth Inc.
  • Serena Ryder, Juno Award-Winning Musician, Mental Health Advocate

Join us for the in-person event. Or, if you prefer an online experience due to distance, convenience, or comfort levels, join us for the virtual event! For the in-person event, masks are mandatory and proof of full vaccination or proof of a negative COVD-19 test administered by an external agency, will be required upon entry. 

In-person event:
Individual tickets for the in-person event are $325 and include three live keynote presentations, breakfast, lunch, breaks, exclusive networking opportunities with friends, colleagues, fellow participants, and sponsors, and entry into exciting prize draws.

Virtual event:
Individual tickets for the online event are $75 and include access to our virtual event platform that will live-stream the three keynote presentations and offer opportunities for virtual one-to-one or group networking, interactive chat, contests and special online video content.   

Proceeds from the event will once again help to support a four-year $30,000 scholarship – the Inspiring Leadership Academic Fellowship. This undergraduate scholarship recognizes students who have demonstrated leadership skills and commitment to academic success, volunteer activities, and their community. At the 2022 event, we will hear from University of Regina student Chantel Hoag, who received the inaugural scholarship this past September, and learn how it will help to shape her future. 

“I initially saw that the criteria for the Inspiring Leadership Fellowship, and it aligned really well with some of the values that I work towards, and so I thought that it was a really good fit and that I should apply for it,” says Hoag. ““Without the scholarship, I definitely would have had to look at student loans and different stressors like that. But now I can go through life’s expenses and the different things that come with being a student a lot more comfortably that I would have without it.”
