If you're a part of the WE-CAN community of women entrepreneurs, we welcome you to join us LIVE and IN-PERSON for a casual, drop-in event!

About this event

It's been two LONG years since the WE-CAN Project held an in-person event, and we are thrilled to announce our upcoming WE-CAN Meet + Mingle for women entrepreneurs in the greater Kingston region!

 

If you've been a part of any WE-CAN program in the past or have attended any of our virtual workshops and events, we would love to finally meet you in person.

After more than 75 virtual events since the pandemic began, this drop-in event will give us a chance to say "hello" and to prove that we all have feet (which we can never be sure of in our Zoom call sessions!).

We hope you'll take some time to stop in and say "hi" and get to know some of the women who have been such an incredible part of this vital community of entrepreneurs across our local region.

The WE-CAN Meet + Mingle will take place at 310 Bagot Street (Level 1) in Kingston at the Seaway Coworking Space. Light refreshments will be served.

Pre-registration by midnight on May 16th is required to attend this event.

 

Please do not attend this event if you have a fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, or shortness of breath or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

NOTE: The WE-CAN Project is committed to providing universal access to all of our events. Please email kerry.ramsay@queensu.ca if you have accessibility requirements as soon as possible as advance notice is necessary to arrange for some accessibility needs.
