The Peter Lougheed Leadership College is empowering our diverse audiences, students and staff to become leaders in the community. Through utilizing interdisciplinary approaches, PLLC endeavors to remove barriers faced by historically marginalized and racialized communities by developing leaders who understand wide-ranging approaches, take risks, and act on values firmly anchored in ethical and social responsibility. By incorporating the voices and perspectives of a spectrum of genders, ages, sexual orientations, abilities, cultures, and ethnicities into all our practices, PLLC works towards creating an inclusive, representative, responsible and innovative future. At PLLC diversity is our strength.

Our Founding Values

Peter Lougheed Leadership College is centered on inclusive values. PLLC is guided by principles of interdisciplinarity, inclusiveness, and collaboration. 

Why Does Diversity Matter?

"Leadership is the work of getting things done in collaboration with others. When multiple perspectives and experiences are part of the conversation, we see in new ways. We are empowered to develop solutions, collectively, that are responsive, transparent and equitable.

The excellence of PLLC programming relies on the rich contributions of people with distinct backgrounds, identities and social locations, enabling the College to provide cutting-edge leadership development to current and future leaders."

- Lois Harder, PhD, Principal of the Peter Lougheed Leadership College from 2018-2021
