Invitation to discussion group

21 Oct

Are you a young man studying or working in Baku?
Do you want to learn more about gender equality and women’s rights?
Then you are more than welcome to participate in a series of discussion nights at Yuva/Youth Center!

Every Wednesday for five weeks we are going to meet to talk about what gender equality and women’s rights are, why the whole of society gains from it and why even you as a man should work for it. There is no obligation to work with gender equality when the discussions are over, just come if you are curious and want to learn more.

We will meet in a small relaxed group where everyone will have a chance to speak their mind.
This is not a seminar, workshop, lesson or lecture; this is a discussion group so it relies on your active participation! And remember, it’s a discussion group only for young men. (Sorry girls, not this time)

The discussion groups will be held in English so see this as an opportunity to practice your spoken English as well!
The first discussion will be held on November 10th at 7:30 pm.
Please inform if you want to participate and send your name, e-mail and phone number to larsson.karolin@gmail.com
Welcome!
