This is more than a workshop; it's a transformative experience. Don't miss out!

Join us for an interactive workshop designed to empower female-identifying people in leadership. We'll ditch the one-way talks and embrace an "unpanell" approach, where our facilitators (formerly panelists) actively guide the conversation alongside participants.

Together, we'll explore:  

  • the unique strengths women-identifying people bring to leadership and the challenges and opportunities that come with them  
  • unmasking imposter syndrome and learning to leverage your authenticity as a leadership superpower  
  • how to cultivate a network of supportive relationships where you can both give and receive invaluable guidance  

 Join us in person

Tuesday, July 9, 2024 at 4:45 PM ET in the Third Floor Foyer of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) – North Building.

If you’re not able attending Fusion in person this year, we’re continuing the conversation right here on the Brightspace Community!

We would love to hear your thoughts on the below questions within this discussion thread:   

  1. What is a unique strength you bring to leadership that you haven't always felt comfortable sharing? How can we, as a group, create a space where all women feel empowered to leverage their unique talents? 
  2. Imposter syndrome can hold us back. Share a time you felt this way in a leadership role. What did you learn from that experience, and how can we collectively support each other in overcoming imposter syndrome? 
  3. Building a supportive network takes effort. Share a specific strategy you've used to cultivate meaningful connections with other women leaders. How has this network helped you grow in your leadership journey? 
  4. Effective networks are a two-way street. When have you offered support to another woman-identifying leader in your network? How did that experience benefit both of you? 
  5. Imagine your ideal leadership network – a community that truly empowers you. What are the key characteristics of this network, and how can we, as a group, begin to build it together? 
  6. Beyond this workshop, what's one action step you can take to connect more authentically with a woman-identifying leader in your life (colleague, mentor, friend)? 
  7. What are the key characteristics of a culture that empowers emerging and established leadership that makes an impact? How do we sustain this cultural growth (or better yet, culture add) as the players change and roles change at an organization?
