This presentation will be offered in English and interpreted in French.

In recognition of Black History Month and in celebration of Black excellence in Canada, please join us as we welcome former Canadian Football League Hall of Fame Running Back, Jon Cornish.

In this conversation, Jon will bring insight into how organisations can successfully cultivate diversity, fostering mental health by doing so. His unique experiences as a Black athlete and business professional will see Jon share riveting perspectives on what inclusion truly means, and why it’s a winning proposition for businesses all over the country.

A celebrated athlete now off the field, Jon remains a dedicated advocate for inclusiveness and a mentor to many young professionals in the Black business community, namely as founder and President Emeritus of the Calgary Black Chambers, as well as the 15th Chancellor of the University of Calgary — the youngest Chancellor ever of a Canadian university.
