5th International Women’s day Event 2024

In honour of International Women’s day, we used it as an opportunity to uplift and celebrate black women with our overarching theme of “Inspire Inclusion” on the 16th of March.

It was a night of entertainment, emotion and important reminders. Topics such as domestic violence and societal expectations of women were talked about. Parenting in the diaspora was also discussed as well as girl-child empowerment. Most importantly, women who attended left with a new found confidence, and a lasting message of looking after themselves. Our main aim is to promote social inclusion amongst women of black origin and this is exactly what we did by providing a platform for women to share their lived experiences, network, learn new skills and ideas, as well as form lasting friendships. This year s event was bigger and more vibrant with about 70 women in attendance. The food was prepared by Golden flavours and we used it as a way of celebrating our African heritage.

We would like to thank our funder, the Community fund for enabling us to host such a powerful event that brings people together to network and share ideas and experiences. Looking forward to next year’s event.
