On November 16th, 100+ rising leaders attended for ELNstudio: Better Leader Bootcamp – a jam packed day of high-intensity workshops and training sessions designed to give your leadership muscles a workout!
Since 2009, ELNstudio has been a flagship event of CivicAction’s Emerging Leaders Network (ELN)—bringing together hundreds of rising leaders from different sectors in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) for a one-day conference to collaborate and tackle the challenges facing our region.
We know this century has already been coloured by new disruptive trends and rapid change. Discourse around diversity and inclusion is on the rise. Trust and confidence in traditional institutions continues to shift. Cities in particular are not just growing at unprecedented rates, but experiencing increasing wealth divides, revolutionary advancements in technology, and the broad impacts of globalization.
It’s clear the world is changing—and the skills needed for effective leadership need to keep pace.
