Come HOWL with us! Join Lakehead University as we host our first Lakehead Sustainability Disruption Contest on November 5th at 1PM Eastern Time. Akin to popular TV shows like Shark Tank or Dragon’s Den, this online contest will feature the Wolf Pack, a panel of judges made up of exceptional Thunder Bay community leaders and disruptors, who invite you to join them as a live online audience. Prepare to be engaged and entertained as our Wolf Pack judges choose the team with the best pitch as the first winners of the Lakehead Sustainability Disruption Contest. Lakehead University's Office will work with the winning team to implement their idea at Lakehead, in alignment with Lakehead's commitment to sustainability as set out in Lakehead's 2019-2024 Sustainability plan. The Sustainability Disruption Contest is part of the Lakehead Makes Leaders Program where students develop key leadership skills focused on innovation, conflict resolution, disruption, flexibility, negotiations, managing uncertainty, and more.
 
The Lakehead Makes Leaders program, an initiative of Lakehead International, is made up of 5 online leadership modules that students can complete during their studies at Lakehead. Designed to address soft skills gaps often seen in post-secondary graduates, the program's 5 modules focus on building critical thinking skills, fostering self-reflection and emotional intelligence, and promoting innovation and disruption, all critical to success in the labour market

Each module is designed to build students’ soft skills and complement their academic learning. These modules are provided to students complimentary as part of Lakehead's commitment to producing the career-ready leaders of tomorrow. Successful completion of each module is recorded as a specific leadership completion certificate on the students’ co-curricular record. Lakehead University students who successfully complete all 5 modules are awarded an overall Lakehead Makes Leaders Completion Certificate. The Lakehead Makes Leaders Completion Certificate helps set students apart, and provides assurance to Ontario employers that our students are career-ready and positioned to be leaders in the workplace.  
 
James Aldridge, Vice-Provost, International and member of the Wolf Pack judge's panel says, "Competitions like the Lakehead Sustainability Disruption Contest offer students opportunities to engage with community leaders and help foster meaningful change. This is part of our commitment to producing unconventional leaders prepared to make a difference in the North."
James will be joined by other community members as part of the Wolf Pack Judge's panel: Riley Burton, Chair, School of Business, Hospitality & Media Arts, Confederation College, and Board Chair, Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce, Lahama Naeem, President, Lakehead University Student Union (LUSU), Michael Nitz, District Vice-President, TD & Lakehead University Board of Governor Member, Richard Togman, CEO, Rent Panda, Dr. David Richards, Dean, Faculty of Business, Lakehead University, Ledah McKellar - Sustainability Coordinator, Lakehead University.
 
We hope you will join us for this fun event and support Lakehead students as they compete in the sustainability disruption contest.
