Hi there, My name is Sandra Wilson and together with my good friend Dr Yansie Rolston we have decided to create a new type of gathering called “Our conversation”. It has been established to provide women of all ages from the Afro – Caribbean and African communities with a space to discuss, to debate and find possible solutions to some of the issues which impact on our everyday lives. We aim to make each conversation interesting, fun and informative. We bravely did a number of pilots last year discussing issues relating to friendships, the menopause and the debating the myth of the strong black woman and our members wanted more including a number of social events so here we are on meet up. Our conversation is where women can freely share their experiences and discuss what has worked for them. It is also about developing inter generational friendships, exploring what it is like to be a woman from the Afro – Caribbean and African communities within the world today as well as having fun together. Our members have made a number of suggestions for future conversations which include: • Relationships – how to develop strong and long lasting relationships • Alternative employment options • Financial management • Motherhood the joys and challenges • Action Learning sets – a method in which to make decisions • How to get the life you want – life planning • Developing Resilience The price of each event will vary depending on the activity.
