A group of Syrian Refugee women attended a workshop on Leadership on May 23rd at CultureLink.
One of the many leadership activities they enjoyed was to talk about the people that had an impact on their lives. All the stories were about people they knew and had personal relationships with. Through this exercise they found out that the leaders don’t have to be famous. They are the people who have the ability to build good relationships with others. Another activity they appreciated was the sharing of their own refugee experience.
In the end, they sang songs from their culture and enjoyed potluck with traditional Syrian food.
They told us they all had a wonderful time and wanted to have more workshops to know each other better and become more involved in their community.
