IOG Graduates the 20th Cohort of the Executive Leadership Program

1 minute read

Thursday, June 13th is a milestone achievement for IOG: we graduated the 20th cohort of our Executive Leadership Program. Mr. Anil Arora, Chief Statistician of Canada, left the graduates with resonating food-for-thought: choose a chair that you love and make a difference on the lives it impacts. This is what ELP is all about. Since 2012, many inspiring leaders and change-makers have come through our doors for training and left with so much more:

  • A network of new colleagues, friends, and mentors to support their leadership journey;
  • an appreciation and love for Canada's North and the governance challenges these communities face;
  • a deeper understanding self, their leadership style, and their goals;
  • a wealth of stories and advice from experienced public servants who once wore the same shoes;
  • a greater sense of preparedness for working in the public service in an increasingly digital world; and
  • a sense of excitement to further their careers using their moral compass and core values as a guide.

Over 300 executives from across Canada now have a more nuanced perspective on what it means to be a leader in the 21st Century. Cheers to you all and enjoy these pictures from the celebration.
