We are excited to share that Mike Veny, celebrated author, keynote speaker and Marketing Committee Chair, will speak to us on “Transforming Mental Wellness in Your Workplace”. Mental Health is so important at this time and having one of our own chapter members speak to this topic is sure to be impactful.

Improve PRODUCTIVITY, team PERFORMANCE and company PROFITS. Addressing mental health is a vital component of your company’s Diversity & Inclusion strategy. Top companies are setting a new standard for Diversity & Inclusion through investing in essential resources for mental wellness. Attendees will learn practical tools on how to transform stigma into strength and empower each other to get the help that they need.

Venue Details

Designed by Rockwell Group, Cathédrale's soaring main dining room feels like stumbling upon an abandoned architectural treasure: Its 26-foot, triple-height ceiling is covered in a massive wire mesh sculpture, Fillmore, by Edoardo Tresoldi that looks like the apparition of a grand domed ceiling.

Moxy East Village's The Ready Rooftop is collegial yet refined.  It feels like an escape from the New York daily grind. The eclectic décor (strung lights, a vine-strewn mural, a bar made of plastic milk crates) and unique food and beverage offerings create a relaxed rooftop experience—like a coveted New York City backyard. The retractable glass walls and roof allow for all-season panoramic views of the East Village and beyond.

Moxy East Village is located in the heart of New York City’s hallowed East Village—the breeding ground for society-shifting movements in rock n’ roll, avant-garde art, Beatnik poetry, LGBTQ+ activism, and American counterculture as we know it. Designed by the Rockwell Group, the hotel flows from bottom to top as a chronological trip through the eras of the East Village—paying tribute to the earliest settlers, the renegade punks and the envelope-pushers of today.
