STRIDE: Supporting Diversity in Leadership at UPEI
Co-hosted by the UPEI Student Union, and UPEI Experiential Education Office, STRIDE is a one-night event organized for diverse students who are interested in pursuing leadership on campus. STRIDE will provide hands-on, skill-building activities such as, Conceptualizing Leadership, Public Speaking, and Self-Advocacy. These engaging activities will provide STRIDE's diverse participants the tools to pursue elected, or hired leadership at UPEI. Historically at the Student Union , groups such as women, LGBTQ2+, and international students have been underrepresented in elected positions, particularly at the executive level. The UPEISU and Experiential Education Office want to provide engaging, useful, skill-building activities that will equip diverse students to pursue leadership.
