We are delighted to announce that we want to start the day by holding a Women's Circle at our International Women's Day event alongside The Regis Centre. We want to bring women from different nationalities, religions and cultures to stand together for a moment in time - to show support and celebrate women - to connect, uplift, and transform together.

Are you with us ? Let's UNITE together for all.
