Tania Xerri is a passionate educator and leader in Adult Professional Learning serving Health and the broader Health community locally, nationally and globally and currently heads the Health Leadership & Learning Network (HLLN) in the Faculty of Health at York University. HLLN provides innovative and leading edge education to working health professionals and health care management and staff.

She is the past board chair of the Conference on Management and Executive Education (CMED) where she served on the board for 5 years.

Tania is currently spearheading the use of micro-credentials and digital credentials in HLLN towards “connecting our learners to the global job community and getting the career they want”. She believes that the path to leadership is found first and foremost through your own personal ability to self-reflect, and that you use leadership in everything you do, no matter how small.
The conversation will be moderated by a Calumet & Stong College team member and is followed by an open forum where students will have an opportunity to ask questions.
