Urban Leadership eXchange

When and Where

Wednesday, June 02, 2021 12:00 pm to Thursday, June 03, 2021 3:00 pm


The Urban Leadership Exchange is a certificate of completion offered by the IMIx Executive Program in collaboration with the Master of Urban Innovation program at the University of Toronto Mississauga’s Institute for Management & Innovation.

Led by distinguished University of Toronto faculty, the two half-day program brings together leading researchers and practitioners to help participants promote positive economic and social change through urban innovation.

Each ULX session pairs a U of T faculty member with a thought leader to explore urban innovation through one of three lenses: cities as centres of the innovation economy, as sites of technological innovation, or as sources of policy innovation.
