Konnect is a 6 month program that provides a network, support, and personal and professional development opportunities for self-identifying women who are working or starting businesses in Kingston.

Konnect is a program that facilitates accountability, support, community, skill building, and opportunities to amplify your success in building businesses or advancing professionally. The program of regular speakers and meet-ups will run in Kingston starting October 2019.

Konnect is also being run by Queen's alumni in Toronto.

This program started when the Dunin-Deshpande Queen’s Innovation Centre and Alumni began noticing a particularly high attrition rate for women-led businesses and a number of female professionals seeking advice on common themes such as mentorship, negotiation, and general professional development.
