We are very excited to welcome Rt. Hon. Kim Campbell as the BCCIE Summer Conference 2018 keynote speaker. The Rt. Hon. Kim Campbell rose to international fame as Canada’s first female Prime Minister of Canada (1993). She held cabinet portfolios: Minister of State for Indian Affairs, Minister of Justice and Attorney General, and Minister of National Defence and Veterans' Affairs. She served as Canadian Consul General in Los Angeles, taught at the Harvard Kennedy School, and Chaired the Council of Women World Leaders. Ms. Campbell served as International Women's Forum President, and was a founding member and later Secretary General of the Club of Madrid, an organization of former presidents and prime ministers.

Today, Ms. Campbell devotes much of her time to serving as the Founding Principal of the new Peter Lougheed Leadership College at the University of Alberta that graduated its inaugural class in June, 2017. She is also a trustee of the International Center for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence (ICSR) at King’s College London. In 2016, she was appointed Chairperson the Independent Advisory Board for Supreme Court of Canada Judicial Appointments, a role that she reprised in the fall of 2017.
