Rendez Vous: Women x Nonbinary Digital Connect

19 October @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Tuesday, October 19, 2021, from 12 pm to 1:30 pm EDT. Free event.

Pride at Work Canada has been bringing women and nonbinary people together over breakfast in a dozen cities across Canada for years. Though we can’t safely hold in-person events right now, we are forever optimists. We’re seizing on this opportunity to connect women and nonbinary people online, regardless of where they live.

Rendez Vous: Women x Nonbinary Digital Connect is the next evolution of our popular LGBTQ2+ Women’s Networking Breakfasts program. It’s a unique opportunity for women and nonbinary people to make professional connections in a casual and comfortable setting – from anywhere!

Our theme for this Rendez Vous networking event is community-based entrepreneurship!

How can building a small business allow us to take care of ourselves and our communities at the same time? What does it mean to stay true to your values as an entrepreneur? Hear from Arti Mehta, creator of Femmeboyant Designs, and connect with other members of the community for a conversation over these topics and more while expanding your professional network.

Our guest speaker will deliver brief remarks, then attendees will be placed into breakout rooms to discuss our speaker’s story, our theme of community-based entrepreneurship, and to meet other professionals and jobseekers. After the breakout room discussions, we’ll come back as a group to share our takeaways and close the session.

Help us make Rendez Vous a safer event! All attendees will be provided with a set of community guidelines for this event that they will be expected to read and abide by. Discussion facilitators will be present in our breakout rooms, and there will be a BIPOC-specific breakout room for folks who wish to join that space.
