Good Works – Compassionate Disruptors for Diversity
Diversity is a fun, funky and formidable word. When we resist the minaturisation of humans we can serve as compassionate disruptors for diversity, with the giver and receiver bending towards each other. In a globally diverse planet, we are a microcosm of the macrocosm that is always in flux. Yet, in a woven universe, life can have sparkle and the rich satisfaction of generously crafted miracles, which this session will explore.
Join us on Wednesday 16 November at 2pm, via Teams, for an exciting Good Works presentation from Professor Edwina Pio. Please register for this session to receive the meeting link and calendar invitation.
