Annual Conference

The PLEAC Annual Conference is intended for Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace funded projects and PLEAC member organizations only.

We are pleased to announce that conference registration for the October PLEAC and Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Conference is now open!

The conference will take place on Monday, October 24th at 8:30am – 5pm and Tuesday, October 25th at 9:00am – 5pm at the DoubleTree Hilton in Toronto. (The PLEAC annual meeting day – only for PLEAC member organizations – will take place on Wednesday, October 26th. More information about this will circulate shortly).

We know everyone’s excited to attend the conference and we can’t wait to see everyone! We understand some organizations are interested in having multiple representatives attend. We will do our best to accommodate this, but we have limited space.

We have space for about 100 people to attend the conference in total. We are prioritizing people’s ability to network, share information, learn from each other, and stay safe. We will ensure that every organization will be able to send at least one person to attend the conference. If we have space to accommodate an additional person(s) from your organization, we will make every effort to do so.

At this stage, if you are interested in attending the PLEAC and Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Conference please complete this registration form by Friday, September 2nd.

Please note: there is no conference registration fee for the first person who attends from your organization. This applies whether you are an SHW-funded organization or a PLEAC member organization.

If you are interested in bringing a second participant to the conference, please complete this additional registration form by Friday, September 2nd.

Please note: the second participant from your organization will have to pay a conference registration fee of $250. This is a cost-recovery fee that will help cover catering, tech fees, etc. You do not need to pay that fee right now; we will need to confirm the number of available conference spaces and will follow up with you directly after September 2nd. We will offer these additional spaces on a first come, first served basis, so please let us know as soon as possible whether you want to bring an additional representative from your organization. Thanks!

Please see the draft conference schedule below and linked here.

Note, some sessions and speakers are still being confirmed, so this schedule continues to be updated. Please continue to check back for periodic updates.

Also, the keynote and two plenary sessions at the conference will be webcast and made available to everyone free of charge. We will post the separate webcast registration links for those three sessions in September and anyone from their organizations are welcome to sign up for those virtual presentations.

We’re so excited to see you in the fall!

Stay tuned for more updates.
