June 24-25 Program

The theme this year is on leading with your whole authentic self. We will bring together intergenerational Chinese Canadian leaders from across Canada to develop resources to empower current and future generations of Chinese-Canadian civic leaders.

We will start the Summit with an intercultural dialogue on what it means to bear witness to what has happened to other racialized groups and how Chinese Canadians can become allies in their own leadership journey. We will then dive deeper into leadership topics that will include:

  • Chinese Canadians in Unexpected Places
  • Do you know what you don’t know?
  • Being comfortable in your own skin

This gathering of Chinese Canadian leaders will provide a forum to share experiences, discuss current thinking, develop insights on leadership, and spark collaborations to support lasting collective impact.
