In December 2019, alumni UBC launched a year-long series that will connect and engage alumni around the theme of leadership. The series kicked off in Vancouver with an evening where UBC alumni gathered to network and learn from high-profile industry leaders. This evening was hosted by PFM Partner, Shelina Esmail, who is also an alumni BC board member.
The evening began with a panel discussion where the leaders shared some of their learning and advice, as well as challenges they’ve faced in their career journeys. Following the program, attendees had the opportunity to meet the panelists and local alumni in an open networking environment over food and refreshments. Attendees – recent grads and well-established alumni alike – walked away feeling inspired, keen to develop their own leadership skills and pave their own paths to leadership.
