What’s up for grabs?

Up to $2,500 in cash prizing, a prestigious summer internship, and a feature exhibition at our annual Showcase Conference in the Spring? It’s a no brainer!

We’re starting with young females and underrepresented groups.

How we’re supporting future female leaders:


Curriculum-Aligned Programming

WE REPRESENT organizes resources, workshops, and coordinates mentorship to enable young leaders to lead and deliver top notch programs to their peers at school, aligned to learning objectives in English and Media Arts courses for Grade 9 and 10.

Creative Arts and Media Competition

WE REPRESENT runs a national creative competition that encourages young people to submit creative works inspired by real life stories. The competition culminates in a flagship showcase event that seeks to inspire, enable and connect young people, with scholarships and meaningful internship opportunities awarded to competition winners.

Our Purpose

We're tackling a representation and a pipeline problem.

Through telling diverse stories of real role models, we are making young People aware of the opportunities that are available to them, and in turn demonstrating the future that they can step into.

By putting young Canadians in the driver's seat of telling these stories, we're planting seeds of possibility and creating a community along the way.


Increase Visibility

We use storytelling as a bullhorn to celebrate a diverse set of role models that reshape how we define leaders and role models


Inspire Creativity

We enable young people to unpack old patterns of thinking, adopt new perspectives, and innovate to change the world


Rewrite the Narrative

We transform the passive into the active, participatory and interactive, inspiring young people to step into the world of possibility they can unlock for themselves


Connect and Strengthen

We connect students with each other, and mentors - building a supportive community that teaches, advocates for, and helps each other succeed


We believe that "If you can see it, you can be it." When you see someone who looks like you, it reveals what is possible.

Suddenly, becoming a prime minister, a CEO, a visionary artist, a professional athlete, a leader - all become much more real. 


Get Involved

Join us in changing the future of leadership!

We're constantly on the lookout for like-minded education partners, community organizations, and Mission-driven companies to work with.
