Madeira Black Alumnae Affinity Sessions

September 28, 2020

Madeira has partnered with The Wells Collective to offer Black alumnae an opportunity to connect.

We are thrilled to offer two affinity gatherings for Madeira's Black alumnae. These are duplicate sessions, with two times offered for your convenience:

Sunday, October 11, 2020 at 3:00 p.m.
Monday, October 12, 2020 at 6:00 p.m.

During our time together, we will process your experiences at Madeira in community with fellow Black alumnae, and you will be provided with resources to continue your own wellness journey. What is shared in this space will remain confidential, and only information received from a specific, in-session survey will be used to inform next steps for Madeira. We can't wait to be in community with you!

We invite Madeira Black alumnae to register for either of the sessions below:
Session One: Oct 11, 2020 at 3:00 PM EDT
Session Two: Oct 12, 2020 at 6:00 PM EDT
Email snailevents@madeira.org for the registration link.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email from The Wells Collective containing information about how to join the meeting.

Affinity spaces are a vital piece of Madeira’s ongoing diversity, equity, and inclusion work. These particular sessions provide affinity space specifically for Black alumnae.
