Activate Altitude: Registration

With Hollyhock Leadership Institute

November 14 - 16, 2023

A strategic gathering for executive leaders in the progressive movement 

Activate Altitude brings together a cohort of senior progressive decision-makers serious about sharing resources and developing strategies. Together we will explore problems of today, and spend time zooming out to advance a shared vision over 5-10 years. The goal is to cohort-build and drive a stronger collective agenda. 

Who it’s for: 

Activate Altitude is focused on progressive Canadian executive leaders in Labour, Advocacy, and Technology. It will include 10 labour leaders (directors and above), 10 national advocacy leaders, and 7-10 digital leaders who hold strategic vision in the progressive sector.

What you can expect

  • Practical problem solving: The format is highly interactive and experiential. We’ll dig deep into challenges, power mapping, and actionable strategies that can be applied right away to accelerate your agenda. 
  • Connected cohort: Deep relationship-building comes from peer coaching circles, facilitated discussions, and rich connection time. Hollyhock’s “whole-person” approach results in lasting relationships.
  • Unique format for out-of-the-box results: Arts-based facilitation and a somatic approach help participants to discover new mindsets and innovative solutions.

Program outcomes:

  • Develop trusting, collaborative relationships with fellow executive-level leaders in the progressive movement
  • Discuss shared problems, align on shared vision for our movement, and collaborate on cross-sector solutions
  • A starting point for creating a long term vision and strategy for the progressive Canadian movement
