E- Learning Modules
All delegates are encouraged to participate in e-learning sessions that will take place in advance of the 3-day immersive program and after. The webinars/Skype sessions offer basic leadership skills, stimulate conversation and will prepare delegates for the Summit.
When will the sessions take place?
The sessions will take place every two weeks from late January until prior to the summit. YWCA will host orientation sessions to help you prepare for the Summit. Dates will be confirmed soon.
What do I need to access a session?
You will need access to a computer, tablet or smart phone with internet to access the Skype or Go to Meeting Platforms. It is best to tune in during the live session, but all sessions will also be recorded. We recognize that not everyone may have the time/equipment to access these sessions. We would like to do our best to remove barriers, so if you anticipate any challenges, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will troubleshoot this with you. This could mean offering a Toll free phone line, emailing the recording or slides.

Come explore the different tools that will be shared and that will help you move towards unconditional love for yourself.
