PLLC unlocks leadership potential in Alberta.

"So far, the PLLC has fundamentally changed the way I view the world. Being able to hear the diverse perspectives and experiences of these people has provided me with a lot of insight as to how I can continue to develop myself. I really appreciate the constant support from the peers, mentors, and staff within the PLLC. The constant and purposeful learning in and out of the classroom is unparalleled to any learning I have experienced before.
