We’re really happy to have gotten together with over 15 ladies on a Saturday afternoon for our first official LMDES event. Bringing in a crowd of fantastic and intelligent women from all over, Templo de Debod in Madrid was the place to be. Our crowd ranged from people who have been living in Madrid for over 10 years to those who were just in town for a short while (on vacation after a year in Korea).
It was an amazing opportunity to get to know some of the fabulous and supportive women in our community, finding unknown connections, sharing stories and hearing amazing projects that people are working on... not to mention snacking on delicious food (special shout out to Christine for the amazing hors d'oeuvre. With ladies from New York, Chicago, London, Cali, Ireland, Jamaica and more… it was a clear representation that there is a diverse group of women of color living here in Spain and with plans to stay. Here’s some photos from the event and be sure to sign up for our newsletter to hear when the next one will be!
PS. The winner of the LMDES x Talaku giveaway is Tina! Congrats!
