Pride in Unity Conference – Presented by Scotiabank
January 19 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm
The inaugural Pride in Unity LGBTQ+ Conference is an annual cross-school conference hosted by multiple universities working closely together to connect diverse and inclusive organizations with LGBTQ+ students across the country. This conference aims to bring LGBTQ+ and Ally students from all academic backgrounds and universities together to foster the individual growth of each student while furthering the discussion of diversity within workplaces. The inclusion of multiple universities provides greater networking opportunities within the LGBTQ+ community and diversity of backgrounds and thoughts.
The conference provides students with the opportunities to further their understanding of LGBTQ+ and diversity issues within their communities and the business world, as well as develop professional skills applicable to all streams. Students can build on and continue their personal and professional development through engagement with corporate representatives in our workshops and panels.
Discussions within our panels will focus on topics of diversity and inclusion such as the development of diversity in the workplace, future trends of diversity, gender inequality, and overcoming adversities and stereotypes. There will also be opportunities for students to expand their professional network with corporate representatives through our career fair and networking session at the end of the event.
