After connecting with dozens of YPNs across Ontario, uncertainty seems to have emerged regarding the term, “Young Professionals.” Does the wording differentiate?
The main goal of a Young Professional Network is to bring together motivated, ambitious, and committed employees from all sectors in the working world in a welcoming and progressive environment to help cultivate personal and professional development.
To know me is to know that I'm an adventure seeker. Trying new things, going to new places, pushing the bar higher and higher is what I like to do. I have solo skydived, bungee jumped North America’s highest bungee height, was a contestant on Wipeout Canada where I have the distinction of being the fastest female in the country for the Qualifier Round, I've been crowned Miss Philippines, and am a big independent travel enthusiast. Being one who tries anything once is someone I`m known to be.
Well we're finally here, making history by launching the Young Professionals Network of Ontario (YPNO).
The idea was first crafted a couple of years ago after identifying a missing network between the dozens of YPNs across the province. Each amazing YPN was being led by dedicated leaders and community volunteers with a focus on engaging young professionals in their own communities. Each one was trying to grow and retain their own memberships, hosting value-added events, engaging governments at all levels, and also facing their own set of challenges.
