Centenary Leadership Lecture featuring Rick Hansen

Be a Difference Maker

Through the power of his own story and that of recognizing others, Rick Hansen, ’11 LLD (Hon.), encourages us all to recognize the difference makers in our lives, and to see ourselves as difference makers. The difference maker in your life is that person who inspires you to take action. They are passionate about using their courage to ignite talent in others. Their energy empowers them to believe in their own potential and remove barriers to create a more inclusive world. 

On Friday, May 22, Rick encouraged UAlberta alumni to maximize their potential, contribute to the country for the good of all Canadians and offer hope and encouragement to many others. Here are some photos from that evening.
