Lead the Shift is a development program delivered by the Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce and PEI Connectors. The goal of the program is to ensure newcomers to PEI find employment corresponding to their education, skills and work experience, to help address labour market shortages in the province.   
 
This program is for leaders and professionals (HR, CEO, etc.) who are responsible for overseeing strategies within their organizations and who want to be more inclusive: to lead, engage and work with diverse teams.
The focus will be to develop a greater capacity within organizations to be ready to welcome newcomer talent to support the success of their businesses.

The program includes seven workshops with guest speakers, and one-on-one consulting sessions focusing on diversity and inclusion policies within your organization. During this program, you will hear true stories/experiences of newcomers to PEI, understanding cultural diversity, evidence & research-based hiring practices, corporate stories from Island businesses who have implemented D&I policies, understanding the impact of microaggression and unconscious bias and more!
