Upcoming Events

Save the date for the March Monthly Meeting, scheduled to take place on International Women's Day, Thursday, March 8th. In an effort to create more awareness about women's issues in developing countries, the event will be in the format of a mini film festival where GVC, a Bologna-based NGO whose work extends internationally, will present two documentaries highlighting women in Tunisia. The screening will be followed by a presentation by two women project managers connected to the films who will discuss their experiences, and an aperitivo will be offered. In collaboration with GVC and generous sponsors, the film festival will be open to the public -- please talk it up and bring your friends! Start time, location and other details to be announced soon.
