Location UTSC (see description for exact location)
Time -

Networking has the power to act as a catalyst for fostering strong, resilient and supportive communities, helping you make genuine connections. At the same time, it is an art that can help you share knowledge with those in your field, understand your value, increase your visibility, and help you to see where you fit within a system.

Please join us on February 29th, 2:00 - 4:00 pm at the Catalyst Center to hear members of Roundtable Records, Anthony Gebrehiwot (XvXy Photo), Chris Wilson (It’s OK Studios), and Elle de Lyon (R.I.S.E Edutainment) participate in a panel discussion focused on networking for community building. Learn how to build connections in a mutually beneficial, non-transactional way, to help get closer to your personal and professional goals.  By connecting to others, you can find inspiration in new perspectives not previously considered, and build opportunities that benefit not only you, but those around you. 

Our panelists will share their numerous experiences and strategies for networking for community or project gains. Their firsthand accounts will help you to understand: 

  • the benefits of networking for personal and community growth 
  • the importance of non-transactional relationship building for holistic benefits 
  • how partnerships resulting from networking have the power to transform and amplify your impact
