QLEC 2022 CONFERENCE
Equipping Students to Lead on Campus and Beyond
The theme of our 2022 Conference is Equipping Students to Lead on Campus and Beyond. Our goal this year is to equip students with the proper knowledge, tools and skills to contribute to change on and off campus. Queen’s University is full of amazing leaders and we want to help bridge the gap between ideas and community action.
This year’s conference will have three sections.
The first section takes place on Friday January 21st, where we will focus on leaders as individuals. Here, we will be addressing questions such as: “what does taking care of myself as a leader encompass?”, and “what skills do I require to lead other people effectively?”.
The second section, taking place on Saturday January 22nd, will focus on taking care of the people you lead. We will address questions such as: “how do I lead with empathy?”, and “how can I best support those I lead?”.
The third section on Saturday afternoon will combine ideas from these first two sessions to focus on leading with intention. In this last section, we will address questions such as: “how can I navigate my team through the ever-changing workplace post-pandemic?”, and “how can I apply the self-management and people-management skills I have learned to better lead within my community?”
Our mission this year is to equip delegates with new skills and ideas regarding how to be an effective leader and to help implement these skills within and beyond their campus. Interactive components, such as case challenges, will be incorporated throughout the conference to help achieve this mission.

The health and safety of our speakers, sponsors, delegates, and team members is QLEC’s highest priority. We are fully committed to ensuring a safe and healthy environment for everyone attending our 2022 Conference. We are monitoring public health guidelines and promise to adhere to them completely and exceedingly.
The conference is scheduled to be in-person in Kingston, Ontario on January 21st and 22nd, 2022. We are confident we will be able to deliver the conference in-person, given the high vaccination rates and the progressive removal of capacity restrictions. This decision is contingent on the guidelines, recommendations, and protocols outlined by Kingston, Frontenac, and Lennox and Addington (KFL&A) Public Health and the Queen’s University administration. This situation is ever-changing, and many facets of the conference, such as capacity limits or a mask mandate, will be dictated by advice that is yet to come. Our team is working diligently to plan for all scenarios, and we are prepared to offer a virtual conference should that be necessary.
