Hello friends!

With the (necessary) extension of the lockdown, comes an extended isolation from community. This mandates further time away from meeting people, physically. But we don’t have to spend our time alone.

We have therefore decided that for as long as this lockdown is effective, we will be hosting community mornings, every Tuesday, at 11am.

With these sessions, we aim to keep things informal whilst covering various topics and themes within Diversify’s mandates (i.e. professional empowerment, mental health, community building, diversity and inclusion).

At the beginning of each session, we will check in with each other to see how we are doing (and provide support and encouragement where needed). Thereafter, we can dive into our agenda for the session. This initiative is meant to build a closer and supportive community where we can all thrive together. You can share if you want, or just listen, no pressure whatsoever!

Join us from the comfort of your home with your drink of choice and/or lunch. We look forward to seeing you!
