Time for another SS! We have 2 more millennial faces for you to get to know, followed by an open forum. This month falls on a Tuesday.
To remind you of what SS is all about – it’s a nod to what our club was founded for! 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 6pm so that we can get a variety of days for different schedules. It is a catch up over Zoom where 2 of our members are 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 2 speakers guaranteed. If you'd like to speak at next month's SS (or on any given month), please let us know and/or 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 about, hopefully a few serendipitous moments! Our group is as much for support as it is for socialising, 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. SisterhoodFind out more »
