We are excited to share the first Indigenous Leadership Circle Project Speaker Series Event.

With the Women in Leadership Foundation's support and guidance from our Indigenous Advisory Council, we have created an intentional space for sharing the lived experiences and heartfelt stories of Indigenous women in the post-secondary education system! Our sincerest gratitude for the participation, time, and commitment from our guest speakers, moderators, and audience for supporting our work.

Mentorship Program

The Women in Foundation is excited to announce the launch of our inaugural Indigenous Women Mentorship Program with our first cohort of ten (10) mentor partnerships.  REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED!  

We are immensely proud of the award-winning WIL Mentorship Program with over 2,000 graduates, our 5 month program matches emerging women leaders with mentors to build confidence and develop leadership skills.  All mentees are matched 1-1 with an exceptional Indigenous woman leader.


What is the impact of mentoring?

In general, for the mentees, it is linked to improved academic, social, and economic prospects and increased knowledge.  For the mentors, the relationship can build leadership and management skills, expand a mentor’s professional network, and provide an empowering opportunity to give back to the community.  The relationship is based on trust, confidentiality, mutual respect, safe space for conversation and sensitivity.  This can be a life changing experience!

For any questions, contact


The Indigenous Leadership Circle project is funded by the Government of Canada’s Workplace Opportunities: Removing Barriers to Equity program, created and managed by the Women in Leadership Foundation, and is led by a team of Indigenous and non-Indigenous women.
