As Canada’s only women’s university, Brescia is uniquely positioned to not only educate tomorrow’s women leaders but to also recognize Canada’s outstanding women leaders of today. BresciaLEAD is a national award designed to honour exceptional women leaders from coast-to-coast-to-coast who embody Brescia’s values of leading with wisdom, justice and compassion in a changing world.

On Thursday, April 7, 2016 over 740 guests gathered at the London Convention Centre to celebrate today’s generation of outstanding women leaders. Along with recognizing extraordinary women and an organization which empowers and supports women to thrive in positions of leadership, Brescia was proud to present Academy Award® winning actor and gender equality advocate Geena Davis as our keynote speaker. Ms Davis spoke about the importance of the empowerment of girls and women worldwide.
