Konnect

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

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.

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 speaker-led workshops and community building meet-ups will run virtually starting October 2021.
