Another successful Advisory Board

Yesterday saw the third meeting of Women’s Lives Leeds Advisory Board, the most diverse of our meetings so far, with 10 women attending from 6 of our partner organisations.

It was hosted by Shantona, at the Bangladesh Centre on Roundhay Road. In two hours we shared stories and looked at the vast skills women acquire by going about their lives.

Women used the various case studies to highlight the numerous skills that a women has!

We did activities, we laughed, we shared some food and we made plans.

We talked about how the women could be involved in upcoming
