Our Volunteers meet and discuss empowering women

Last fall, Advisory Board Member, Veronique Geoffrion, invited Artistri Sud volunteers to a Meet-Greet and-Brief reception where ideas were exchanged, our spirits were lifted and our focus remained on empowering women! The volunteers are all dedicated to empower women in developing countries! 


The cocktail was the perfect occasion to introduce everyone, welcome new volunteers to the team, educate all on being a better volunteer and celebrate their incredible impact helping Artistry Sud empower women across the globe. The evening was a huge success as an Esprit de Corps was formed and helpful connections were formed.
