March 5, 2021 – WYA North America organized a spectacular online called “Network for Dignity” which aimed at gathering experienced WYA friends to speak with current members in a professional environment. More than 30 participants liaised on various topics. The event was held on the Gatherly platform, which provided a unique atmosphere, much like an in-person networking event, where you could easily join conversations by moving your icon. The event was hosted by Siobhan Heekin-Canedy, the WYANA Regional Director, and the industries represented were business and finance, healthcare, international affairs, non-profits, and the arts. The evening included conversation on investment advice, engaging in advocacy, and upholding your dignity through strife. The response from participants was positive, and the evening was engaging.
“Network for Dignity was a refreshing event held on an innovative platform. The conversations held with WYA friends will remain with me forever as a source of inspiration and confidence!” ~ Attendee
