About the webinars:

Knowing Yourself as a Change Agent Join us in the first of a series of short leadership development sessions. These first sessions will explore how personal reflection and self-assessment helps each of us increase our understanding of our personal leadership style. We will provide examples of reflection and assessment activities and include personal experiences from advocates for youth.

  • Wednesday, April 4th, Part One : Leadership styles
  • Wednesday, April 18th, Part Two: Self-assessments and reflection


What is my culture? What are my values? Each of us has a personal leadership style and leadership journey. This is shaped by personal values and culture. The next sessions in the leadership journey series focus on defining culture and values and how each connects to leadership. As we reflect on our own culture and leadership, we will discuss how to engage in reaching health equity and building inclusive communities. Join us in this session for learning, reflection activities, and discussion.

  • Wednesday, May 2nd, Part One: Culture and values reflection
  • Wednesday, May 16th, Part Two: The role of youth leadership in health equity work


Cultural Perspectives on Self-Care in Leadership How do you create an environment that is supportive of each person’s values and cultural perspectives on self-care?

We will also as share concrete and inclusive practices that emerging young leaders can adopt that embrace diverse perspectives and collective approaches to community and self-care.
