Dear womENcourage SC,


We hope you are safe and healthy, enjoying some Spring days.


We are sending a short report on our womENcourage 2021 conference preparations. The three key aspects of the past month (besides all others) were:


  1. Approval Form / TMRF

We have submitted the Approval Form/TMRF on 16 April and are awaiting approval. 


  1. Registrations

Registrations open on 1st June and we are designing the registration formular to adjust to our stakeholders’ needs. We will start the publicity around registrations towards the end of May. 


  1. Cultural program

We had a fruitful discussion about the cultural program last week. The event might feature a workshop about how to network at a conference, thematic movie streaming, interactive and fun activities, local community brunch and feedback sharing. This will be an exciting part and we are looking forward to finalising the ideas soon.

The program outline was approved by the career fair chairs, who will organize networking with supporters, industrial panel discussion and two career fair sessions where the participants can meet our supporters.
