Lead with Pride X

Lead with Pride X: Leading with Intention

Thank you to everyone who was a part of the 10th annual Lead with Pride LGBTQ+ student leadership conference! Stay tuned for more information on how to be involved in our Executive Jumpstart conference taking place in July 2019.

This year, Lead with Pride took place on Friday, February 1st and Saturday, February 2nd, 2019. This unique two-day conference, organized by a team of students and staff, brought students together to learn about LGBTQ+ issues, leadership and community building on campus and beyond.

Lead with Pride is open to U of T students across all three campuses from all academic disciplines. We encourage all interested students to apply, including current student leaders, volunteers with LGBTQ+ groups, and new students looking to connect with LGBTQ-related student organizations for the first time. No leadership experience is required to apply. We budget for a number of spots, so attendance is limited. Everyone is welcome to apply, but priority may be given to students who have not attended Lead with Pride before. Lead with Pride is completely free for U of T students to attend. Meals, with gluten-free and vegan options, are covered for all attendees. TTC tokens are also be made available to students who require help with these transportation costs.

For its 10 year anniversary, “Lead with Pride X” was an effort to recognize and celebrate what the conference has accomplished thus far, as well as how it will continue to grow LGBTQ+ leadership. Throughout the past decade, Lead with Pride has gathered hundreds of students, staff, alumni, and community members to engage in vital conversations around LGBTQ+ leadership, develop an understanding of anti-oppression work, practice self-care, and learn tangible, hands-on skills to support student organizing and leadership.
