Partnering with Ivey Business School
Our Ivey Foundations program focuses on developing top leaders. It’s a highly interactive, case-based approach to learning. You’ll work alongside other leaders at Maple Leaf Foods to develop your leadership skills. You’ll learn about the changing landscape of the food industry, reflect on lessons learned in other companies across industries, understand the strategic direction of Maple Leaf Foods and explore ways to fast-track your personal leadership journey.
Our Women in Leadership program
We developed the Women in Leadership program in partnership with Ivey Business School (University of Western Ontario) to help women realize their full potential. It’s an engaging, week-long program that provides the space and opportunity for women to connect and strengthen their leadership skills and equips them with tools, insights and learning experiences to advance their career.
Attracting women to manufacturing roles
It’s a fact that manufacturing roles tend to be dominated by men. We want to change that! We want to attract women to a career in manufacturing and operations. We want to help women develop and grow in a supportive, inclusive work environment.
