Pride at Work Canada is proud to support a free networking event dedicated to trans, non-binary and agender professionals and jobseekers! This event will take place from 7:30-9:30am in a private dining space at the Marché Movenpick located in Brookfield Place at 181 Bay Street. Based on feedback at our first event in November, we will have more structured networking activities from 8am-9am, with casual networking on either end. Attendees are welcome to come and go as they please throughout the two-hour event, enjoy complimentary breakfast and network with one another.
Why is this event taking place?
While many events and networks are inclusive of trans, non-binary and agender people there are questions and discussions unique to these community members and their experiences. The organizers seek to create space for professional and job-seeking trans, non-binary and agender people to find support from and make connections with one another. They hope to be responsive to the needs and suggestions expressed by those who attend as they shape future events.
Who should attend?
The purpose of this event is to provide space for folks who identify as trans, non-binary and agender. There is no desire to monitor anyone’s gender or create barriers to entry. If you come to this event you will be welcome. While the support of people who identify as allies to trans people and communities is always appreciated please remember that the best support sometimes comes in the form of leaving space for people to connect around their shared identities and lived experiences.

Attendees are welcome to use any washroom in which they feel comfortable, and may ask for accompaniment by an event organizer.
