Leadership 2020

Building Capacity. Addressing complexity. Inspiring Change.

Leadership 2020 was The Federation’s custom-built leadership development program. We invited participants from the social services sector, Indigenous communities, and the public sector/government who were working to develop their own leadership, who were contributing to social change, and who were building a strong, sustainable sector devoted to equity, justice, and active reconciliation.

Leadership 2020 combined personal experience, cutting-edge research, relevant theory, and participatory approaches to inspire and empower participants. The programs combined in-person residencies, online teaching, and self-directed learning. The content was relevant, iterative, practical, and inspired by the needs of participants who were encouraged to apply what they learned in their day-to-day practice. During the program, participants built a strong community of practice and a network of colleagues and advisors that they now draw upon with the program finished.
