The inaugural GenNext Summit brought almost 300 young leaders to the RBC Convention Centre to learn and share ideas for moving forward towards a more thriving Winnipeg.
Panelists included amazing leaders in our city like End Homelessness Winnipeg CEO Louis Sorin, Aboriginal Youth Opportunities’ Michael Redhead Champagne, and Connie Walker, CEO of United Way Winnipeg.
CBC Manitoba host Marcy Markusa led a discussion about the future of our city, and Gail Asper, President and Trustee of The Asper Foundation will gave the closing keynote.
Summit attendees also had a chance to mix and mingle with United Way agencies to discover volunteer and board opportunities.
The 2017 Summit, planned for October 18, will explore the theme of Identity, and what that means as an individual, a generation, a community, and a city.
Feedback from Summit attendees provided some interesting insights into what people learned, and what matters most to them.
