Elevating Laurier Leaders

This event is part of a special women's series hosted by President Deborah MacLatchy. Elevating Laurier Leaders (ELL) is coming to Waterloo after sold-out events in Toronto in spring 2019.

The series brings together accomplished Laurier alumnae committed to advancing women’s leadership and to helping them achieve their full potential. ELL is part of building a supportive community of women from diverse industries and backgrounds who want to support each other in their leadership journeys.

You can register for this event and other ELL events online. All events take place at THEMUSEUM over breakfast.

    A facilitated study group (FSG) is a time and place for you to get together with other people from your classes and an FSG leader (someone who has previously taken the course) to discuss the course content and gain a deeper understanding of what is being covered in the class lectures and readings.

    This does not mean that the FSG leaders will teach you the content, but they will help you enhance your understanding of course material, and they can also help students with understanding assignment requirements.
