Looking back on this year the Positive Leadership Development Institute (PLDI) has a lot to celebrate as we had another successful year and ended it on a positive note.

On Thursday December 5, 2019, three HIV positive leaders from Ontario got on a plane to Montreal to join five leaders from British Columbia and six leaders from Quebec to further develop the National PLDI program. Little did these 14 individuals know that they were about to embark on a once in a lifetime opportunity, for not only personal growth, but  for growth as a team of facilitators as well. Connection, patience, happiness, joy, inspiration, strength and so many more are adjectives used to describe their time together.

The event was packed with learning and sharing. One highlight was a session facilitated by Doris Peltier, who took participants through a learning circle. We laughed, cried and learned. We shared success stories and also challenges. We talked about similarities and celebrated differences. Having the three provinces together to share ideas and tips and tricks was so valuable and endorses the fact that PLDI is an outstanding program that really works.

From the PLDI family to yours, we wish you peace love and happiness and look forward to another fun filled year of learning and sharing. We look forward to sharing big news about PLDI in the New Year!
