Call for Proposals

The School of Leadership Studies conference team invites you to submit proposals related to one or more of the conference streams, and/or the conference theme Diversity, Creativity and Possibility.

In the year that Canada celebrates its 150-year anniversary, we are looking ahead and asking, what kind of leadership will Canada need in the future? 

The conference theme, Leadership Conference 2017: Diversity, Creativity, and Possibility, reflects the current era in Canada, where the importance of collaboration and reconciliation are increasingly recognized. What new and creative possibilities for leadership might emerge as we learn to live, work, and play together more harmoniously?

The conference will build on the 2015 theme, Leadership. Complex. World, and will address the extent to which increasing complexity and globalization intersect with this year's focus on diversity, creativity, and possibility.
