Annual Conference

We are excited to announce the PLEAC and the Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Conference for 2023!

Registration is open!

This year’s conference will take place on Wednesday, October 25th and Thursday, October 26th in Toronto, Ontario at the DoubleTree Hilton. PLEAC Members and SHW-funded organizations are welcome to register here. Please register by the deadline of Monday, September 18th. After September 18th, we will promote registration externally so spots may disappear. 

The PLEAC annual meeting day – only for representatives from PLEAC member organizations – will take place on Friday, October 27th. More information about this will circulate to PLEAC member organizations shortly.

We can accommodate up to 150 people at the conference in total this year. We are prioritizing people’s ability to network, share information and learn from each other. We understand some organizations are interested in having multiple representatives attend. If you plan on sending more than two people, please let us know. We will do our best to accommodate this, but we have limited space.

In the meantime, here are a few things to note:

  • This year, we will charge a $50 flat fee for each individual registration to secure your spot and help cover conference costs. Payment will be collected via PayPal upon registration or via cheque. If you expect this fee to be a participation barrier for anyone, please do not hesitate to reach out.

  • Similarly to last year, we will be able to cover accommodation at DoubleTree Hilton for one individual from an SHW-funded organization. 

  • Again, if your SHW-funded organization can cover the cost of travel, please let us know. If travel is going to be a barrier, we will be able to offer partial travel coverage.

Please see the conference schedule below (detailed schedule to come):

Again this year, the keynote and plenary sessions at the conference will be webcast and made available to everyone attending virtually, free of charge. We will forward 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. 

Last year, the conference brought together PLEAC Members and the Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Project organizations. We had over 100 attendees who were able to network, share information, and attend a multitude of workshops and plenaries, including opportunities to interact with each other throughout the conference. Simultaneous interpretation was offered to accommodate our French-speaking attendees and larger sessions were webcast to allow those to tune in who were unable to travel. We received great feedback and look forward to hosting the conference again next year.
