About this Event

AST Leadership Learning is honoured to host Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya in an exclusive online conversation with AST Associate Professor, Dr. David Deane to share insights from her compelling leadership philosophy and journey.

This free online session, hosted on Zoom, will take the form of an interview and Q&A, and is available to all participants who register for the session.

Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya is a human rights activist and the leader of democratic Belarus. She challenged and, by many accounts, defeated the autocratic president Aliaksandr Lukashenka in the 2020 presidential election.

Tsikhanouskaya is gaining international recognition and support for her leadership of social justice, compassion and kindness. Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya is:

  • An average person who has become the figurehead of a movement to overthrow a dictator.
  • A woman who is leading an effort to end a form of toxic male leadership.
  • A mother who is crusader for a different life for her children and a generation of young Belarusians.
  • A child of Chernobyl, who has overcome a disadvantaged background to be: shortlisted for Time person of the year, nominated for a Nobel prize, listed as one of Bloomberg's 50, in meetings with international leaders, and in frequent calls with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and with U.S. President Joe Biden.

Ms. Tsikhanouskaya epitomizes the values-based leadership we are working to foster at AST Leadership Learning - leadership that seeks to create a more just, compassionate and sustainable world.
