Women and Culture Interest Group

Women and Culture Interest Group
Facilitator: Sue Schulz
Contact: sue.schulz@att.net or 847-741-7610

How does culture affect/effect us as women? How can we build an understanding of different cultures? How can we make meaningful connections within the diverse communities of our area? By participating in a variety of activities, we will expand our knowledge and understanding of global communities and those represented here in Elgin. These activities will broaden our opportunity to meet and connect with diverse women along with building our branch as an inclusive center that will know how to work with a diverse community and value what it will bring to the branch.

When: 3rd or 4th THURSDAY or some Saturdays of the month (open to change for special events). Email will be sent to membership with scheduled events.
Time: 1:00p.m. (subject to change for special events)
Place: Members homes (subject to change for special events)

This group is meant to be an organic environment, planned usually by each season. Member leadership is encouraged for planning and execution of meetings.
