Women in Leadership alumni

The Women in Leadership alumni has been formed to maintain and enhance a highly engaged, vibrant community that works actively to promote and support women aspiring to leadership positions and to publicly acknowledge the significant achievements of its members.

Membership of the alumni is initially by invitation to those who have participated in Women in Leadership programs. Membership may then be extended to include those in senior leadership positions (Level 5 and above [Education Act] and Level 7 and above [Public Service Award]).

Alumni will have access to a Connect Community, events that support the Rising Leaders program, opportunities to mentor others and guest speaker events.    

Through the alumni, networks will be developed and strengthened, with positive professional relationships not based on work level and position. Skills and knowledge related to leadership will be enhanced and mentoring may occur within the group.
