We acknowledge that the land upon Leadership Waterloo Region's offices and programs are based is the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Anishnaabe and Neutral People. Waterloo Region is part of the Haldimand Treaty, which encompasses six miles on either side of the Grand River.
Leadership Waterloo Region is making it a practice to publicly acknowledge the history of the land on which we work in order to re-visibilize Indigenous peoples, whose existence and struggles have been largely absent from the Canadian consciousness for hundreds of years, and also to collectively reflect on our role in repairing our nation’s relationship with the original inhabitants of Turtle Island (Canada).
We are sorry for the harms and mistakes of the past and commit ourselves to work together to build a future where all can thrive. We thank our Indigenous brothers and sisters for their friendship and partnership in sharing this great land with us, along with sharing their wisdom through our programming.
What We Do at Leadership Waterloo Region
We encourage, empower and equip current and future leaders to unleash positive change in their communities.
We encourage our Core Program members to push their personal limits, question their thinking and beliefs, check their biases and be open to new opportunities and experiences.
We empower our students to be ok with being uncomfortable while working to figure out why they feel the way they do. We empower our class to ask tough questions and work through wicked problems.
We equip our class with tools, knowledge, resources, and the network to help them on the next stage of their leadership journey.
