For 12 years, the Leadership Conference has been one of C3’s flagship events. The Leadership Conference is centred around professional and personal growth that has attracted over 1000+ attendees in that time span. The full-day conference aims to support post-secondary students, recent graduates and young professionals by providing the following resources:
- career-focused workshops
- networking opportunities
- personal mentorship sessions
- professional + interpersonal connections
- inspirational keynote speeches and much more.
Our aim is to continue to foster leadership and growth opportunities for the next generation through key events such as the Leadership Conference.
Attend this year’s Leadership Conference and meet like-minded peers, connect with diverse mentors and explore this year’s theme: "Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling."
Who are we?
C3 Society is a non-profit organization, lead by a group of volunteers who are committed to making a difference in the community through cultural and community engagement.
This year’s theme is "Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling" -- navigating your personal journey as a multicultural, Korean-Canadian leader.
The term "bamboo ceiling" was coined in 2005 by Jane Hyun in Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling: Career Strategies for Asians, where she addresses the barriers faced by many Asian Americans in the professional arena, such as stereotypes and racism, while also providing solutions to overcome these barriers.
What is a mentor session?
A mentor roundtable is one-to-one mentorship session between you and a professional who is currently working in a field of your career interest. The mentor roundtable is very unique to our Leadership Conference.
How does it work? What is the process of being matched with a mentor?
You will be asked to choose an industry that you are interested in pursuing post-graduation and will be matched with a mentor from that field. Each session will be approximately 30 minutes long and will allow you to learn more about what the mentor does in their respective role and career advice relevant to your field.
Our mentor roundtable has been one of the most popular sessions in our Leadership Conference because it gives delegates a chance to connect with professionals and to learn tips on transitioning from post-secondary to the professional realm. We encourage those currently in post-secondary as well as recent graduates to participate in the mentorship sessions.
