Connect For Intentional Movement

March 15, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Are you looking to make lasting connections and learn more about essential topics in the Windsor-Essex Community and beyond? Then, join us for our new series, Connect For. This free, in-person networking event will take place monthly, focusing on a different theme or industry.

Our first session will be titled “Connect For Intentional Movement.”

Mental health is at the forefront of many conversations in our everyday lives. As a result, many organizations, entrepreneurs, and community members are working to alleviate it by creating a sustainable and vital path for future generations.

During this two-part event, attendees will have the opportunity to network with like-minded folks, professionals in the mental health space, advocates, and community members looking to create an impact and drive change.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to hear from a fantastic panel that will address the needs of folks with mental health challenges and how organizations, entrepreneurs, and community members can better work toward an intentional movement.

Meet our Panelists:
