The Global Connections for Women Foundation will host “My City Story” as part of celebrating the diversity of our GC4W Circle community. During these times, we know that it can be difficult to find comfort, however, we believe that expressing your love for your cities, not only provides peace within yourself, but it also creates a deeper connection with others. 

Starting Friday, April 17th, we will be hosting the first edition of “My City Story” at 3 pm EST. on @GC4Women Instagram Live – and we would love for you to be a part of it. With everything that has been happening across the world, we have created a new opportunity to express your love for the city you live in. 

If you are interested in participating in this exciting event, and talking to our founder, Lilian Ajayi-Ore, on “@GC4Women’s MY CITY STORY” IG Live for up to 5 minutes, please submit your RSVP here.
