2022 Inspiring Leadership Forum presented by TD

TD LogoThe University of Regina’s Inspiring Leadership Forum is a premier leadership development event that is focused on women – the challenges they face, the strengths they possess, their resilience and compassion. This Forum draws people from Saskatchewan and beyond to hear the inspirational stories of internationally renowned leaders, to connect with others and, in doing so, support the development of future young leaders through the scholarship funded by this event.

A Virtual Experience for 2022

Due to the changing situation with COVID-19 and the Omicron variant, we are now offering all attendees an exclusively virtual experience for this year’s Forum on Wednesday, March 2, 2022. If you have already purchased a ticket to attend virtually, nothing will change. If you have purchased an in-person ticket, please refer to our FAQs page for information around how to attend virtually.

Happy on Purpose

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. 

“We live in challenging times with issues and circumstances that may overwhelm people. It is 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” says Pam Klein, Chair of the Forum and Chancellor of the University of Regina.

Here’s what people said about our virtual presentation of the 2021 Inspiring Leadership Forum presented by TD:

Well done! I have attended countless virtual events and conferences and I thought that, from a logistical standpoint, this was the best. The pre-event communications were top-notch. The speaker line-up was excellent. Thanks for your hard work in putting together such an excellent morning.

Great job! I was very impressed with the virtual Forum and all that it could do. I chatted with a guest in the networking site who was in Bangladesh, and met others from Regina and Saskatoon. I was much more talkative and outgoing being in a virtual networking space.

As a first-time attendee to the Inspiring Leadership Forum, I was excited to attend this event and even more excited that it was virtual. I was super impressed how well everything went. You all did a fantastic job and I can't wait to attend next year!
