she/zhe leads the world leadership summit

Women have always been a powerful force in Canada’s labour movement, holding leadership positions at the Local, Regional and National levels. Yukon Employees’ Union is proud to join the PSAC Regional Women’s Committee, PSAC Area Council and PSAC North as major funders of this important event. *See below for sponsorship opportunities for YEU and PSAC members. 

She/Ze Leads the World - Yukon’s first-ever Women’s Leadership Summit may be the next step in your leadership journey: a leadership summit for northern women November 19-21 at the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre in Whitehorse.

How would your life change if;

  • you knew what you were really good at and focused on excelling at those things?
  • you had the tools and the courage to know your needs and speak up in your workplace?
  • you could say no to the things that don’t serve you?
  • you became a pro at turning your big ideas and big dreams into reality?

Learn to use these skills to lead in your workplace, your community, and your family. A leader isn’t only someone at the top of the organization or the boss. A leader is someone who knows how to achieve their goals – whatever those goals might be.

At the She/Ze Leads the World – Yukon’s first ever Women’s Leadership Summit, you’ll be inspired, and you’ll learn practical skills you can implement in your life from women who have charted their own course

She/Ze will empower women across the north to be changemakers, to turn big ideas into reality, and to have a greater impact on their industry, organization, and community.

With two jam-packed days of panels, inspiring keynote speakers and breakout sessions, you’ll learn from female leaders from across Canada who have used their passion and determination to drive their success. With off-site events and our Mentor One-2-One Hour, you’ll have the opportunity to meet like-minded peers and work through your challenges with strong senior leaders.

Keynote speakers include Vicki Saunders, founder of #radicalgenerosity and SheEO, and Paulette Senior, CEO and President of the Canadian Women's Foundation. Other speakers, workshop leaders, and panelists include: Kluane Adamek, Tara Larkin, Maureen Johnstone, Lana Welchman, Kelly Diels, Tracy Theemes, Ruth Unrau, Erin Pauls, and more...!

Get ready to be inspired, to cultivate your strengths, and to create lasting connections.
