The YWCA Niagara Region’s 10th annual Leadership Summit for Women is coming this spring — with a call to arms for women leaders to embrace authenticity, assert their worth and fearlessly pursue their goals and aspirations.

Tickets are on sale now for this year’s summit, taking place on April 6 at Brock University, featuring keynote speakers, panel discussions, workshops and networking opportunities for all in attendance.

Every year, the summit brings together a diverse collection of women, girls and nonbinary individuals from across Niagara who have been leading the way in their careers.

The theme for this year’s summit is “Bold and Unapologetic”: the goal, its organizers state, is to foster a culture where women feel empowered to lead without apologizing for their success or downplaying their achievements.

“By connecting, collaborating, and celebrating successes, we strive to address the primary causes of societal challenges rooted in gender inequity and social injustice,” Elisabeth Zimmerman, the YWCA Niagara Region’s executive director, said in a media release.

“Our mission is to create a space that not only empowers women, girls, and non-binary individuals but also builds a community where everyone thrives together.”

This year’s keynote address, “Designing Delight: The Bold Blueprint for Women Leaders to Ignite, Excite and Delight,” will be led by Crystal D’Cunha, an award-winning customer service specialist and president of the Inside View Inc., where she puts her expertise into practice.

The summit will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. There are eight workshops in total, split between the morning and afternoon, on topics such as self-confidence, self-expression, cultivating a positive workplace culture, project management and more.

Tickets for the Niagara Leadership Summit for Women are now available online, and the organizers encourage the community to secure their spots early for this event.

Attendees can purchase a ticket for $30 or opt to sponsor a delegate, allowing women who may face financial barriers to attend and take the next steps on their leadership journey.

General admission tickets also include a lunch provided by the summit.
