The Women’s Resource Centre recently held a kickoff public discussion in a series of public conversations for women titled ‘Women’s Empowerment Discussions’ at the official residence of the U.S. Consul General.

A spokesperson said, “The cross-section of representation, the venue, the intimacy, sumptuous refreshments, the generous hospitality of US Consul Dierman, and the obvious thirst to engage in effective and meaningful conversation, allowed for an evening of candid discussion on diverse issues facing women and families in Bermuda today.”
