Want to lend your skills to support social change projects? Join us to hear from two Fellow-led projects and discover others via our online collaboration platform Wazoku.
In this online event, two Fellows will share how their projects are responding to challenges emerging due to or exacerbated by the pandemic, ending with clear calls to action. There will be a chance to offer your skills and expertise to develop these initiatives via the Wazoku platform, and to learn more about how these practical solutions were created through two Q&A sessions.
