31st Annual SWAAC Conference

April 26th-28th, 2018

Halifax, NS


Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia Community College, NSCAD University, St. Francis Xavier University and Saint Mary's University are proud to host the 31st meeting of the Senior Women Academic Administrators of Canada (SWAAC) Conference.

The 2018 conference will explore how authenticity supports leadership in higher education and other institutions, and how our expectations of leaders are changing. We will connect and share experiences and ideas on pertinent topics in post-secondary education, particularly related to the role of senior women academic leaders. 

The biggest mistake people make when trying to be authentic is just that: they try... Authenticity isn’t about what things appear to be. It’s about allowing things to be what they are...
