Digital Breakfast no.6


Lessons from Lockdown 

Thursday, August 13, 2020
Time 10:30 AM Europe/London
(please arrive at 10.25am)
Attendance FREE 

2020 has been a year which has stopped the hamster wheel many of us have been trapped in for a while and made us take count of where we are at in our lives, what impact our work is having in society and how else we should be contributing to the wider world.

It has not been an easy year but it is one with a legacy which will no doubt impact our lives and the built environment. 

We would like to invite you to attend a conversation between Cristina Lanz Azcarate, Architect and Chair of NAWIC London and South East and Safia Boot, Independent Workplace Investigator and Advisor on topics such as Diversity and race as part of the NAWIC London and South East committee. 

Cristina and Safia will share their lockdown experiences, personal and professional, and they will explore positive outcomes and lessons to take forward. They will also invite attendees to share their own journeys.

Do sign up ASAP to avoid disappointment.
(We want to thank our voice on Twitter Annie Clift (from Limeslade) for hosting this for us once more.

Applications  to the year-long programme opened for mentors and mentees

"I have been mentoring with Fluid since the 2013/14 cohort. On that occasion, I signed up both as a mentor and to find a mentor who would keep me focused on my goal of co-founding a studio while advancing my career at the one where I was employed at the time.

My mentees have ranged from talented students about to start looking for their first job to talented qualified professionals looking to navigate office politics and dynamics in order to advance their careers.

Having lived in the UK for 22 years, first as a student and then as part of the local built environment workforce, I have invaluable insight which Fluid has allowed me to pass on to others. And in doing so, I have been able to keep the promise I made to myself to change the framework which tends to hold those from diverse backgrounds back.

If you are looking for ways to create an impact, I would recommend you to join Fluid and create real change by using your position and experience to lift others."

In March, our team created a private Community hub for our members to remain connected during the lock-down. We wanted to provide a safe place to share information and discuss any challenges in order to help each other. 

Help us better manage the communication with you through these challenging times for all of us, please email and ask Cristina to resend an invitation to you one more time.
