Monthly Sisterhood Spotlight

April 16 @ 6:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 6:00 pm on day 16 of the month, repeating until June 16, 2021

A new year brings forth a new initiative to ignite some old intentions! This club will always be about sisterhood at its core, and one of our FAVOURITE things to do in the millennial group is to lift each other up and be inspired by the achievements and spirit of our members. So, in addition to weekly Sunday shares in our millennial Whatsapp group chat, we are going to have a monthly Sisterhood Spotlight (SS), always taking place on the 16th at 6 pm so that we can get a variety of days.

Our first will take place on Saturday, January 16th and will comprise of a catch up over zoom where 1 or 2 of our members is given the floor to tell us what they’re passionate about, what their dreams are, any projects/initiatives they are currently working on, where they come from and how they got to where they are now, and anything else they want to share! Everyone is welcome to speak each month, with at least 1 arranged prior. If you’d like to speak at next month’s SS (or on any given month), please let me know and Rebecca will contact you! We want every member to feel supported, and it will be great to connect with each other on things we may not have been aware of, hopefully, a few serendipitous moments! Our group is as much for support as it is for socializing, and we want to ensure there is a forum each month for everyone to get the most out of their membership.

Let the millennial mantra for 2021 be: Serendipity. Solidarity. Sisterhood

To kick off this initiative, this month, we will have 2 incredible women from our millennial group share their knowledge and speak on their journeys:
