About Circle of Kindness: AFMW Fireside Chats
We all have moments in life when we need a listening ear and sometimes, it’s easier to share with someone you don’t know that well.
I’ve been asked several times by members and non-members if we provided peer group sessions to support this, and recently invited members to meet and set our parameters. We all agreed that there is a need for a safe space filled with kindness and trust where you can meet other medical women and talk about the challenges you’re facing, so we formed the Circle of Kindness: Fireside Chats.
As President of AFMW it gives me great pleasure to launch these monthly sessions. Times will change so that no one misses out so watch out for our eBulletin and website. Come, bring a friend who is not a member but would benefit from having access to our Circle of Kindness.
This event is open to all AFMW members and non-member guests.
Please share event with friends and colleagues.
