RL Circles News

NEW CIRCLE SUGGESTION: EMPOWER WOMEN
Renate Wernery has made a wonderful suggestion for a new evening circle which would be called Empower Women
The world and Dubai is full of strong and successful women we could invite to talk to us in various, interesting venues.
Renate is a member of SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL of Gulf-Dubai and is very passionate in encouraging sincerity in friendship and empower the advancement of women everywhere.
She already has some possible speakers lined up including Kim Thompson of RAW COFFEE; Assia, a Dubai citizen, who has single-handed secured training in our best hotels for rape and torture victims from African countries and Sareh Ameri, founder and first president of Soroptimist International of Gulf-Dubai, where we all actively volunteer our talents and energy to help women and girls live their dreams every day by giving them resources to create positive change – for themselves, their families and their communities.
To obtain speakers of this calibre, we would need to ensure sufficient support. If this is something you would be seriously interested in joining, please email Jackie or talk to Renate or Jackie at one of the RL meetings.
Please contact Jackie on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be interested in joining this or any of the circles
