What happens when you bring together GenNext, a spark cocktail mixer and the Ottawa Social Impact Awards?
The February Mix & Mingle: Winter Social!
We host five Mix & Mingles throughout the year, sponsored by TekSavvy, and February’s event was a sold-out success.
In support of our GenNext Social Enterprise Giving Circle, we brought together Impact Hub Ottawa and spark —the United Way-led women’s giving initiative — for a night to celebrate the leaders in our community working hard to make Ottawa an even better city.
Congratulations to the 2018 Ottawa Social Impact Award winners: Hidden Harvest, Ausome Ottawa and the Algonquin Public Relations Program.
A big thanks to our host, Impact Hub Ottawa, our collaborators at spark, our amazing sponsors, and everyone who attended for being part of a community that values local, social innovation and contributing to positive change.
Funds and proceeds raised from the event will support the GenNext Social Enterprise Giving Circle. These funds support people like Doug, who found a job through Right Bike —a GenNext-supported social enterprise.
At GenNext, we’re all about collaborating with groups like Hub Ottawa and spark and bringing together young people from different industries to connect with community leaders. Here’s what some of our attendees had to say about it:
