Encounter•KW  Sharing Experiences of Transition with Focus for Ethnic Women

Join a conversation with board members from Focus for Ethnic Women as we share our experiences of significant transition and the meaning we made from them. Whether we have a story of migration and settling in Canada or of transitioning to university life, the stories we share will shape who we are and who we become. We’ll meet at SJU and travel together to Victoria Hills Community Centre. Snacks are provided!
