Thank you to everyone that attended our 3rd Coffee Talk on Saturday June 25th at Xanadu Coffee Co where we discussed not only what firms can do to cultivate minority, women, and LGBTQIA+ staff into more leadership roles, but also the devastating news that came out on Friday morning regarding women’s reproductive rights and the overturn of Roe vs Wade.
We are grateful to have a supportive community within our chapter where we can find safe space for all to express their feelings, thoughts, and solutions candidly free of judgement. This is where growth happens and we thank each of you for showing up to the conversation. We will recap what we learned at the next chapter meeting on August 9th at 6pm.
Stay tuned for the next Coffee Talk!
About Coffee Talks
Every other month join us for Coffee Talks – order a warm/iced beverage of your choice from rotating cafe locations around the valley, get comfortable, and bring your open mind to this productive discussion where NOMAarizona facilitators will ask the group questions and hold space to share, listen, and learn from each other in a casual setting.
This is intended to be a forum for discussion of ideas and for learning about differing viewpoints. In discussions around diversity and equity it is important to understand that everyone sees and experiences the world differently – what seems “right” in your experience may not be so in someone else’s. Everyone is asked to consider different perspectives, for the purpose of sensitivity, learning, and growth. Members of NOMAarizona will typically be the facilitators for our discussions. We are not experts. We are simply here to help facilitate the process. We are here, like everyone else, to learn.
