The theme of this year's conference is Inclusive Leadership and features the following two speakers:

Tina Varughese: Tina is an Indo-Canadian daughter of first-generation East Indian parents, which allows her to find “the best of both worlds” and shed light, knowledge and most importantly universal humour into the intercultural workplace.  She draws from her experiences as an entrepreneur, mother, daughter, wife, sister and friend when delivering keynotes on work-life balance and diversity and inclusion-topics which resonate with her both professionally and personally.

Hadiya Roderique: A graduate of the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law, Hadiya is a researcher, consultant, broadcast commentator and former podcast host. She also holds an M.A. in Criminology and is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources Management.  As a researcher, she broadly examines how race, gender and parenthood shape perceptions and relationships in the workplace. As a young, black woman working as a lawyer on Bay Street, Hadiya Roderique delivered a wake-up call to corporate Canada in the form of her Globe and Mail feature essay, “Black on Bay Street.”  In 2018, Hadiya was named one of Canadian Lawyer’s 25 Most Influential Lawyers and she was recognized with the Rising Star award from the Canadian Association of Black Lawyers.
