This group will meet to learn and reflect upon how culture affects us as women.
As we build an understanding of different cultures, we will learn to make meaningful connections within the diverse communities of our area.
By participating in field trips, special activities, and discussions based on books or movies, we will expand our knowledge and understanding of global communities, as well as those represented here in Elgin. The activities will broaden our opportunity to meet and connect with diverse women, and build our branch into an inclusive center that knows how to work with a multi-cultural community and values what it brings to the branch.
