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],  as well as Reyyan Ayfer [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 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.
