Building and Maintaining Support Networks
Wednesday, December 2nd at 6:00 PM
Everyone needs a support network. But what is meant by a support network, and how to we go about establishing them? What is required in a good and supportive network and who should be involved? Do support networks require a mentor or are there different ways to get help? These and many more questions will be pondered in the next GWISH Hui: building and maintaining support networks, on December 2nd at 6 pm.
We will have an open forum about some aspects and wishes of our support networks as well as reflecting on how we personally could create one. There will be a brief presentation by GWISH outreach coordinator Jesse van der Grient with some pointers to aid some of the forum discussions. All are welcome to join; this event is not limited to GWISH members only.

While we haven't gathered together in person this year, we love hanging out virtually with our GWISH members and supporters.
