Dear Dr. Saidat Onashoga,

 

I hope this email finds you in good health and you are weathering the
pandemic well.  

 

Thanks so much for your proposal for womENcourage 2021.  We would like to
get further information about your proposal,  please complete the full
proposal template which includes a detailed budget breakdown by 19th of
June, 2020.

 

These are difficult times with Covid-19 in our midst, which requires
flexibility from everyone.  At this time we are very busy with the
organizing team of 2020 for changing the event to a virtual online event.
Therefore we ask your patience in our responses as we are helping the
current organizing team.  Even so I want to introduce you to Rukiye Altin
[log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> ,  as well as Reyyan
Ayfer [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> ,  who are both
committed to supporting you through the proposal process.

 

I have attached the full proposal template to this email and you can find
more information  <https://acmweurope.acm.org/celebrations/> here.  We are
making a small change to the template in section 10 to include contingency
plans for online or physical distancing when attending the event.  We will
update the template and make it available to you.  In the meantime, you can
continue with the other sections.

 

The Steering Committee also encourages you to consider organizing a regional
event which includes participants from a number of the countries in Africa.
We are happy to support you both in activating your ACM chapter and in
organizing the regional event. 

 

Please do not hesitate to contact us with your questions.  Looking forward
to seeing the full proposal on 19 June 2020.
