Join us for an alumni event, featuring a compelling panel discussion with prominent leaders within the Winnipeg community. This event is being organized by a team in our current LW class; come show your support and immerse yourself in an outstanding and informative experience!

Leadership Winnipeg Changemakers are aiming to spotlight some of Winnipeg’s most inspirational Community Change Leaders, who will share their leadership stories and provide valuable insight and tips on how anyone, at any stage of their career journey, can take the lead and help move the needle towards change.

Change leadership requires efficient, effective execution and possibly even disrupting leadership approaches. Too often, leaders miss opportunities to lead and impact change, so we are aiming to challenge and empower the audience‘s leadership mindset; to drive changes and succeed in our constantly evolving community.

Enjoy coffee and conversation with local community leaders and reconnect with Leadership Winnipeg alumni.
