What is Lead with Pride?

Our campuses, cities and communities thrive when LGBTQ2S+ students are supported in developing their leadership skills. Since 2009, the Lead with Pride (LWP) conference series has provided over a thousand students opportunities to gain skills to make a positive impact on U of T and beyond, to move our communities towards a more inclusive present and future for all of us.

Though we are apart during COVID times, it is still important for us to connect with one another to meaningfully explore issues that impact our communities and to build our capacity to face these challenges together.

Join us for the 2021 Lead with Pride Conference Series held virtually between February 24 – March 11, 2021.

The 2021 Lead with Pride Conference Series is proudly sponsored by U of T affinity partners mbna and TD Insurance. Discover the benefits of affinity products.
