Explore your exercise creativity, initiative, and community through movement and reflective dialogue with Learning to Lead!


Learning to Lead is a movement experience program centered around the health and wellness of students who identify as racialized or BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) womxn at U of T, presented by KPE’s Indigeneity, Diaspora, Equity and Anti-racism in Sport (IDEAS) Research Lab and the Well Being Collective @ Hart House. 

Learning to Lead is an 8-week program consisting of weekly 60-minute group sessions. The sessions consist of two components: 

  1. Movement Experience: Beginner-friendly movement, with opportunities to strengthen, dance and move. 
  2. Facilitated Discussion: Instructor-led discussion, with opportunities to explore confidence, impostor phenomenon, sensuality, empowerment, self-care and more.   

The Learning to Lead program will run in the Exercise and Dance studio at the Hart House Fitness Centre every Wednesday, starting January 24, 2024.  

If you are an undergraduate or graduate student at the University of Toronto who identifies as a racialized womxn, you're invited to join Learning to Lead! 

Learning to Lead offers participants the opportunity to engage in a voluntary research component focused on embodied learning and leadership for racialized womxn. Participants who choose to take part in the research component will have the opportunity to share their experiences during the program and in post-program interviews.  Participants who engage in the research will have the opportunity to learn about and benefit from the outcomes of the study and will be compensated for their participation. 

If participants have any questions about the program or the research component, please email the program coordinator, Jasmine Lew at [email protected]
