Menslink Midweekers are free events held every four weeks at Gryphons Caffe Bar on a Wednesday evening.
They’re open to every man, woman and young person interested in discussing issues affecting young guys in our community.
Every Midweeker features a well-known Canberra man talking about his life’s journey and the challenges he has overcome to get where he is today. Speakers have included politicians, sportsmen, businessmen and other famous people.
Brumbies great Clyde Rathbone talked about overcoming depression, as did Liberal MLA Andrew Wall. Greens MLA Shane Rattenbury talked about growing up without a dad on the south coast, and how important mentoring is for young men, while Federal Labor MP Andrew Leigh talked about the influence his mentor, High Court judge Michael Kirby, had on his life and the immense sorrow he experienced when a good mate killed himself at a young age.
Midweekers are a great way to hear inspiring stories from Canberran leaders, learn a bit about Menslink and the great work we do, and meet old friends and new in a friendly setting.
Come and enjoy a coffee, drink or meal and listen to our speakers.
We are very grateful for the ongoing support of the Canberra Raiders. Players sometimes come along to the events and we regularly give away home game tickets in our business card draw.
