Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Forum

Wednesday, June 2, 2021 (7:00 AM - 4:00 PM) (PDT)


This full day forum and career fair will bring together CEOs, C suite executives, public sector leaders, international speakers and thought leaders to have conversations on the topic of diversity, equity, and inclusion and how we can change the mindset and culture of an organization. 
  • Are we changing the culture in our organizations to be more diverse, equitable, and inclusive? 
  • What is your company doing to cultivate Indigenous, Black, and Immigrant women in leadership in your company? 
  • What can we as individuals do with our awareness and knowledge to continue a positive impact for change?
The benefits of organizations having diversity and inclusion in the workplace are: increased employee retention, attraction of millennials, talent pool expansion, elevated innovation and productivity, better returns, and enhanced corporate branding.
The Women in Leadership Foundation (WIL) is striving to make a difference in the campaign for diversity, equity, and inclusion and we are excited to announce our expansion of our Diversity and Inclusion Series, which began in 2019 lead by the Toronto WIL Chapter, to create this national, annual online event: The National WIL Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Forum and Career Fair. Join us and be part of making a difference!
