2021 ACCT Leaders’ Summit- Aspire to Lead






A Series of Canada-Wide Virtual Gatherings for Aspiring, Emerging & Established Chinese Canadian Leaders

Program Overview

ACCT Foundation is excited to announce the return of our Chinese Canadians Leaders’ Summit, and you are invited to join us, virtually. Building on the highly inspirational and successful inaugural Summit in 2019 our theme this year is “Aspire to Lead”.

We are inviting Canadians of Chinese descent of various demographics – gender, age, ethnicity, professions/sectors, and from across the country. Participants will be aspiring, emerging or established groundbreakers and major influencers, philanthropists, academics and policy makers. With the online nature of our 2021 Summit, we are excited to expand our reach and make a larger impact.

At our Summit, you will:

• be engaged in thought-provoking dialogue with leaders and trailblazers;

• make meaningful connections;

• be supported by a community of leaders to help you on your personal leadership journey; and

• be inspired to lead.
