What is the Women Leaders Institute Scholarship?

We are offering scholarship assistance to women from diverse backgrounds who have historically been underrepresented in workplaces.

This includes (but not limited to) First Nations women, linguistically and culturally diverse women, women living with disability and members of the LGBTQI+ community.

The scholarship will cover the two-day conference fee to attend our annual Women in Leadership Summit.
