Our Theme for 2020
The theme for this year's I.LEAD conference is 2020 Vision: Lighting the Path to Clarity. With one decade firmly behind us and a new one beginning, we must plant the seeds for growth to become our best selves. In 2020 we must have clarity for our ideal future. We must believe that we can achieve our goals, we must strive for success, and we must put our plans into actions.
Rewriting our personal stories can be daunting, but when we have the right tools we are setting ourselves up for success. With the right tools, the next ten years can be yours for the taking. Elevate yourself to levels you have never achieved before. Illuminate your path to success with I.LEAD's 8th annual conference.

What Does ILEAD Stand For?
The aim of the conference is to engage, empower and support the Muslim community to work together and actively participate in building a vibrant community and a greater Canada while maintaining a Muslim Identity. The ILEAD conference was created and is run by the United Muslim Organizations of Ottawa - Gatineau (UMO-OG). It is an initiative that acts as a coordinating group for the 12 prominent Islamic organizations in the National Capital Region.
While each member organization is operated independently, the UMO facilitates important collaboration in areas such as education, social services, charitable works, public relations and large community events such as the ILEAD conference. ILEAD stands for Islam, Learn, Engage, Achieve, and Develop.
