Come grab a seat at our table! A series of inclusive and participatory sessions for hospitality folks.

About this event


From 5:00pm to 6:15pm EST on November 29, with special guest TBD

Please join us to discuss, share, compare, listen and learn about mental healthcare in the hospitality industry from each other and with special guests at Not 9 to 5’s Kitchen Table Talks!

We are hosting this space in anticipation of the launch of our new website in November. A lot of labour and funding has been spent on this investment and we are thinking of our new website like our home - a virtual space that we own and can invite our industry into that values psychological safety.

And so, we want this to feel like we are welcoming folks into our home - and obviously that starts with our kitchen, because the best conversations and memories always begin and end in the kitchen. Right? Join us for some real talk - we’ll go deep, be vulnerable, share stories and wisdom.

About this event

Our guest facilitators, Stefan Morales and J.D. Nasaw, will host a participatory space that will encourage us to...

What to expect

  • All you have to do is sign up, block off the time, and show up well-rested, and ready to fully participate!
  • This isn’t just a presentation - you’ll have the chance to be in dialogue with others in small groups, and with our special guests.
  • Each session will have a short somatic break facilitated by J.D. Nasaw
  • Get cozy, bring your favourite drink, snack, blanket, etc. light a candle….
