Creativity in Leadership: Lessons from my Journey with Pride Winnipeg
August 25, 2023Free
We’re BACK!! Join us on August 25th at 8:15 am outdoors at the CUBE stage in the Exchange District to kick off the fall series of CreativeMornings. We are excited to see you after your summer adventures and explore the theme of PRIDE together!
** ASL Interpretation is offered at every CreativeMornings Winnipeg event!**
Bring a chair: Since this is an outdoor event, please bring your own chair and dress for the weather (our rainy day location is RRC Polytech Patterson GlobalFoods Institute beside the CUBE).
Wear your pride: Since the global CreativeMornings theme for August is PRIDE, we also invite you to WEAR YOUR PRIDE to this event. Think about what lights you up and what you are proud of – creatively, culturally, personally, and professionally. Wear something that celebrates it! Proud of being part of a sports team? Wear a jersey! Proud of learning to sew? Wear your first quilt! Proud of your cooking? Wear a chef’s hat or apron! Proud of your heritage? Wear your culture! Proud of your woodworking? Wear your tool belt! Be creative, and let’s gather to celebrate each others’ gifts, talents and moments of pride together as a community.
