Our signature events

GenNext Connect

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, our team had to adapt to the fact that we won’t be able to gather in person for a while. We still wanted to find a way to come together virtually, so we created GenNext Connect to stay in touch with our supporters and introduce you to local thought leaders and change-makers—all while staying safe and comfy at home!

GenNext Amplify

To celebrate the launch of GenNext East Ontario, we hosted a two-day virtual event with a series of speaker sessions led by local advocates, artists, and professionals. 

We know not everyone was able to attend all of the sessions—and those of you who did attend may want a refresher—so we’re bringing Amplify to you! We made the event recording accessible to the public, so you can rewatch them and use them as a resource to share with your friends, family and co-workers. 

Mix & Mingle

When we’re able to get together in person, Mix & Mingle events are our way to connect with you throughout the year! More lowkey than Schmoozefest, Mix and Mingles are a night out at a cool local venue featuring great eats, drinks, and company. 

It’s a good time for a good cause, with all proceeds from our ticket sales going right back into our communities, where we can make the greatest impact.


Ottawa’s social, in-person event of the year! Enjoy tasty local food and drinks and get together with dozens of great “People 2 Know”, all while helping raise funds for GenNext East Ontario so we can continue to support the causes you care about. 

With hundreds of people showing up to support our communities and make new connections, Schmoozefest takes the work out of networking!
