What we're about

We're professional workers 👩‍🏭 and students 👨‍🎓 in London. We're passionate about our culture-by-ethnicity and culture-by-residence. We're passionate about making a difference together 💪.

What do we do?

We meet up, form a circle, and discuss a single topic affecting us.

Topics have included:

- British Arabs through the generations - How are we different from our parents?

- British Arabs and Open Mindedness - Is our culture due an upgrade?

- British Arabs and Social Empowerment - How are we helping Non-Arabs?

Something to consider before joining:

The professionals should be learning from the students as much as the students learn from professionals.

This is not a place to discuss a specific faith - we are a multi-faith demographic.

This is not a place to discuss a specific profession - we have members from many sectors.

SAFETY - How it feels to be an Arab woman in the UK. What can we do about it?

In the aftermath of the unfortunate cases of Sarah Everard and Sabina Nessa, let's discuss how safe we feel as Arabs in the UK (specifically Arab women), and what we can do to make it a safer and brighter future.

Topics of discussion:
◾ As women, how safe does it feel in the UK?
◾ As men, do we think we'd feel that way? Is there a disconnect?
◾ Why does it feel this way? What examples are there?
◾ As women, how do we see the future of safety in the UK?
◾ As men, what is our perspective on what is going on?
◾ What can be done to make life feel and be safer for all?
