Next Up Calgary has wrapped it’s 7th year. There were 18 participants this year, in a program that was supported by about 40 grad volunteers and 28 guest presenters over the course of 38 sessions. This year also marked the fifth Community Connection, which saw 60 participants attending 10 workshops, 12 marketplace of ideas presentations and a fantastic lunch in a full day of strengthening networks and growing conversations about transforming Calgary.
I am very grateful to Arielle, Charlene, Chloe, Emily, Holly, Jacie, Katie, Khalil, Krystal, Lindsay, Lise, Litia, Meghan, Nicole, Nina, Tara and Thana for their committed participation, co-education, vulnerability, trust, good humour and hope.
