The COVID-19 pandemic has separated many of us from our loved ones but has also brought us closer together. It is because of this and the understanding that many womxn and underrepresented may be hindered from giving a talk that we want to propose OUR FIRST ROUND OF LIGHTENING TALKS!
We are completely overwhelmed and grateful for the amount of interest we have received from the GLOBAL R-Ladies community that we are certain that this will just be one of many 😉.
