Event description

Description

The BridgingTheGap Youth Innovation Mastermind, organized by Lovell Corporation, brings together executive mentors with emerging talent aged 18-35 looking to build their career, scale a venture and/or pursue innovation. We strive to ensure the voices of future leaders are present, which includes those from marginalized and minority groups—such as youth from low-income areas, Indigenous, rural areas and women—who may currently face barriers but hold potential to actively contribute to society when given the chance to be heard, share their ideas and develop their skills.

The event is part of a cross-country tour meant to solicit ideas and solutions for the Government of Canada's National Strategy for Sustainable Development. Interactive thematic roundtable discussions will help them develop action plans for community challenges (i.e. the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs)) and they’ll leave with the tools to take action.

Are you an experienced professional? We invite you to participate in this event as an executive mentor to share your insights and expertise with young people during the roundtable discussions. Please register for the Executive Mentor ticket below.

We'll follow up with you on this, but if you would like to complete it now, we have a questionnaire for you: https://changegen.typeform.com/to/MIojQm


Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
