Queen Geniuses Annual Conference

Young people are not the leaders of tomorrow, they are the leaders we need right now. Supporting young women tap into their strengths through this annual conference is one of the ways Regine Roy helps them to unlock their potential and activate their natural leadership qualities. Every year hundreds of students who participate in Queen Geniuses programs are invited to the annual event to learn how to powerfully manage their social and emotional needs in order to build the capacity needed to get into action needed to transform their own lives as they powerfully provide leadership in their personal and academic lives.

Speakers, presenters and performers lead transparent, challenging and powerful discussions on relevant social issues to unveil achievable solutions. Over the years these conferences have equipped dynamic young people with skills and tools that support them in tapping into their Purpose, Creativity and Confidence which will charge them to own their future through workshops, breakout sessions, panel discussions and interviews, we anchor the activities and insights from the school year and foster a new culture — one of success, confidence and support.
