What an immense time of change and uncertainty in our community. In the face of enormous challenges there have also been moments of joy, unfailing human spirit and leadership that have lifted us up and united us as a community. The old adage of “it takes a village…” has never been more true.
This year marks Leadership Saskatoon’s 20th Anniversary. Although we have had to postpone our planned celebrations of this milestone, we haven’t let the pandemic stop us. Like many of the great leaders we know, we have adjusted our sails and have adapted to change. The current pandemic has strengthened our resolve to continue to build and support community leaders in Saskatoon.
As a registered charity, Leadership Saskatoon - like many organizations - is feeling the impact of the pandemic. We have been working hard to adapt our programming and are continuing to move forward with new curriculum for the fall. We also remain committed to providing both free and low-cost leadership development opportunities through our Lunch and Learn program and our Diving Deeper Alumni Workshop Series.
We are optimistic about the future of our community and are currently planning for a new class of leaders in September. As we recruit for our upcoming year there is a need to ensure that we have funds to provide bursary support for new and emerging leaders, and leaders whose organizations can no longer afford to send a participant.
We need great leaders and the support of our community networks now more than ever. Please help us by making a donation through our CanadaHelps portal to support our work.
Thank you for your support of our organization and our community!
Leadership Saskatoon gives you the opportunity to deeply reflect on your current leadership path, gain essential tools to develop professionally, and build a network with other leaders. Thank-you for offering a very well organized and highly professional opportunity for leaders in our community!Jess Hamm, Saskatchewan Intercultural Association
