About Our Chapter

Dynamic. Diverse. Inspiring. Empowered. These are just a few ways to describe our remarkable city of Toronto. These are also the themes we weave through the Toronto Chapter of Lean In Canada. Our programs are rooted in thoughtful consideration of Lean In’s purpose, as well as the unique needs of women in Toronto. We strive to provide collaborative, engaging, and empowering programming. We focus on tools, resources, and sense of community that supports the fulfillment of career goals for the women of our city. Our volunteer executives and their teams are some of the most dedicated women around, and they infuse their passion into everything they do with and for Lean In Canada-Toronto. So, Toronto, join us as we build a world where people of every gender can pursue their dreams without bias or other barriers holding them back.

"Lean In Canada has provided me with an amazing opportunity to connect with individuals from diverse backgrounds and experiences in a great venue."
