Our  Mission

Konekt is an non-profit organization which offers Canadian adults of Polish descent relevant and sophisticated spaces for professional development, community building and networking, assisting them to excel in their endeavors and maintain, as well as heighten, a connection to their Polish heritage. The organization also aims to educate the wider Canadian population about Polish culture, history and Polish-Canadians' contributions to its infrastructure and cultural mosaic.

Creating  a  Larger  Community

People seek community and belonging as they age and social networks change due to factors of family, mobility and transforming stages of life. Konekt offers the unmet need of offering relevant and sophisticated spaces for professional development, community building and networking under the umbrella of a defining and unchanging/unwavering identity: Polish descent.

Membership  Benefits

Membership Benefits Include: Professional Development Workshops and Seminars, Networking and Mentoring Events, Connecting with Poland’s Rich Culture and History, Career Advancement Opportunities, Access to Member Only Job Listings, Recognition Events and Leadership Awards, Discounted Business Advertising Opportunities.

Goals  Outline

Create sophisticated, modern and carefully curated spaces and experiences for socializing, community-building and camaraderie.

Serve and celebrate a wide range of Canadians of Polish descent who come from diverse backgrounds, histories, upbringings, values and religious systems, and identities.

Offer educational opportunities for networking, skills building and professional development such as mentorship and seminars.

Support and market a variety of auxiliary events and opportunities organized within the broader Polish-Canadian community, including but not limited to: festivals, cultural events, academic lectures, government events, etc.

Highlight the relevance of “Polishness” for navigating life’s important decisions and everyday life for the maintenance of Polish heritage, traditions and historical memory in Canada.
