Two beer or not two beer? That is the question at this joint St Patrick’s Day event on Thursday, 18 March! Organized together by Honolulu Ambassador Luiza Belkova and Seattle Ambassadors Katrina Devenny and Vikas Gupta, this online event is a great opportunity to dress up, have a drink (or two), and socialize with one another in allocated breakout rooms!

Who is Your Female Inspiration?
Everyone has a captivating and unique story, including members of the New York Happy Hours Group! On Monday, 8 March they shared their own personal or professional experiences as part of life’s journey and celebrated their achievements. We want to thank Isabelle Cottenden for hosting the online event!
This International Women’s Day, members have paid tribute and celebrated the women that inspire them with various events and traditions. On Sunday, 7 March the Dubai Energized Group organized a special online henna event, hosted by She. E.S. and Hritika Bhagat, where members learned some simple designs to draw on their hands. As henna has always been a great tradition, used before holidays or on occasions, this was a remarkable event!
On Saturday, 13 March Tanuja Shankar, Consul of the Budapest Indian Culture Group, hosted a special online event to take members on a journey. It allowed them to get a glimpse of India through a woman’s eyes and taught members how a woman is portrayed through classical Indian dance.
A great discussion took place on Monday, 8 March in an online event organized by the Moscow Changemakers Group and hosted by Ayse Yargin and Divesh Kumar. Expats and global minds got to exchange thoughts and ideas about the importance of women and their contribution in society with guest speaker Sati Mik.
On Thursday, 11 March activity hosts David Sacramento, Fernando Villavicencio, and Claudia U organized a movie night for the Los Angeles Hispanic Heritage Group. Members had suggested the Spanish movie “Los adioses” (English title: The Eternal Feminine) and they were taken on an insightful journey of how a young woman fights for her voice to be heard in a society run by men.
We would like to thank Ambassadors, Consuls, and activity hosts for organizing events and activities to make St. Patrick’s Day and International Women’s Day memorable and enjoyable for our members. We are sure that everyone had a great time.
