  1. Amanda Goth, University Secretary, guided us through a conversation on the leadership lessons learned while being part of the Sandwich Generation – a generation of people responsible for bringing up their own children and for the care of their aging parents.
  1. Andy Thompson, Program Assessment Specialist, Quality Assurance (Academic), guided us through a conversation on the role power and status play in our leadership journeys. Do we need power to lead and does having power make us leaders?
  2. Kylie Patrick, Senior Development Officer in the Department of University Advancement, guided us through a conversation on leading through change. Change is a constant in our lives, at work, home and in our communities. How we handle change in our lives both personally and as leaders can have a huge impact on the quality of our lives.
  3. Jane Van den Dries, Communications Officer in the Office of Vice-President Academic, guided us through a conversation that focused on exploring resilience, authentic leadership, and our personal philosophy.
  4. Samantha Munro, Healthy Workplace Officer in the Office of Quality Initiatives, guided us through a conversation exploring how our personality traits can impact our sense of belonging and connection, and how as leaders we can create opportunities for authentic connection.
