cultural immersion

AMWL values diversity. We aim to recruit women of different backgrounds and cultures to foster an environment of growth, learning, and inclusivity within our organization. We organize a multitude of events each year with the goal to learn more about different cultures and give members a chance to share more about themselves.

Cultural Cooking

Cultural Cooking w/o a Recipe

We hold committee cultural challenge championships to see which committee can get the most cultural immersion points. One of our main events in the friendly competition for the most points is cultural cooking w/o a recipe. Committees are tasked with making a cultural food such as churros or empanadas without a recipe.

Mehndi Social

Mehndi Social

We recently held a mehndi social. It was a fun way to hang out with fellow members and get some beautiful mehndi done.

Degriefing

Degriefing

Our last meeting of each semester is a degriefing meeting in which members are allowed to conduct an open discourse on their experiences as minority women. We aim to provide a strong support system during this time and perform active listening.
