Learning to Lead

Learning To Lead is a movement experience program centered around the health and wellness of students who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) women at U of T .

Integrating physical activity and reflective dialogue, Learning to Lead is an eight week program that will teach life skills including leadership, self-care and communication through philosophies of movement.

Through this student-led program, BIPOC women will exercise creativity, initiative, and teamwork through movement and discussion. If you are an undergraduate or graduate student at the University of Toronto who identifies as a racialized woman, you're invited to join Learning to Lead!

  • 30 minutes of instructor-led discussion - opportunities to explore confidence, impostor phenomenon, sensuality, self-care and more

Who can participate?
