We welcomed Midland Arden Region President Jan Hemlin to our June dinner meeting. She gave us a very interesting and informative talk about her journey as a Soroptimist so far. Amongst the highlights were her descriptions of the many Soroptimist International conferences and conventions that she has attended, and the opportunities they offer for networking, development and collaboration.
Jan also gave us a clear explanation of Soroptimists involvement in the UN that demonstrated the extensive work done to address the may issues and inequalities that affect women and girls throughout the world.
Although Jan delivered some very powerful statements in a gentle but dramatic manner, this just enhanced their message.
