Alongside the important lessons of Black history in Canada, it’s critical to honour the resilience, creativity, and vitality of Black people in the face of inequity past and present. This year, we’re continuing to elevate Black history by honoring the theme of Black Joy. Join Canadian Club Toronto on February 15 for a celebration of Black creativity, Black leadership, and Black agency, featuring some of Canada’s most accomplished leaders: Alica Hall (Executive Director, Nia Centre for the Arts), Charlene Theodore, (Chief Inclusion Officer, McCarthy Tétrault) and Ray Williams (Managing Director & Vice Chairman, Financial Markets, National Bank Financial), in conversation with David Simmonds (Global Chief Communications & Sustainability Officer, Great-West Lifeco).

This panel will discuss lessons and insights from their individual paths to leadership, the contributions that they are making within their sectors, and share insights on what it will take to accelerate and amplify the beauty of Canada's Black diaspora.
