This ongoing series of live events on the third Friday of each month combines a social opportunity to strengthen connections within our volunteer family with an ongoing learning approach to engaging with the Courage to Care mission and messages. Join a diverse group of interesting people in conversation and feel uplifted, more informed and better equipped to speak on our issues.

All volunteers are welcome! You can join an occasional Conversation or become a regular – there’s no pressure at this casual and enjoyable morning of discussion. Refreshments will be avalable.


Friday 20 October
Face the challenge: take the Ambivalent Sexism Inventory quiz

“Women — you can’t live with them, and you can’t live without them.”
This male quip captures something essential about the face of sexism: an ambivalence, or doubled-edged way of thinking, in which women are sometimes treated with contempt and sometimes adored. How can adoration qualify as sexism? Take the Ambivalent Sexism Inventory and explore the dual nature of prejudice toward women and afterward compare your level of sexism with the scores received by people from around the world.

Some interesting stats about Courage to Care:
C2C Committee of Management has 11 members with 8 identifying as female and 3 male.
All 4 Subcommittee Chairs are female.
We currently have 63% Female volunteering, with a broad plan to increase Males to 40% from 37% over coming years.
C2C has a Code of Conduct that governs behaviour.

You’ll get the most out of the Conversation if you do some background reading or viewing in advance, but that is optional – you can join the discussion without preparation.
