The Coady Institute, St. Francis Xavier University, Antigonish, Nova Scotia

More than 70 mid-career women in the non-profit sector received intensive leadership training through this pilot project, which ran from 2012 to 2015.
The Leadership Institute, established in partnership with the Coady Institute at St. Francis Xavier University, was designed to ensure that the next generation of women leaders in Canada’s nonprofit sector has the leadership skills needed to effectively manage, build the sector, and become a force for change for gender equality in Canada. Many of the Leadership Institute graduates are working on the forefront of social change—using their skills in a diverse range of organizations across the country.
