Since 2016, the Leadership Academy has been fostering education and leadership development among our membership. Its goal is to strengthen members’ workplace and political activism, so that they can inspire others to push for change in their communities.
Over 100 members were selected to attend the Summer Academy from Sept. 16 to Sept. 20, 2018. These member leaders spent four days and three nights at Nottawasaga Inn Resort & Conference Centre in Alliston, Ont. for the educational program. Members attended one of four different streams: facing management, mental health, organizing your workplace, and political action. In the evenings, members interacted with each other at different social events, such as a movie night, a campfire gathering, and a karaoke night.
