Volunteering/Mentoring

The SheNomads Book Club, led by Donia Robinson, is a weekly group that gathers on Slack to discuss a nontechnical book of topical significance to the SheNomads community.

The goal of book club is to encourage SheNomads members to invest time in reading for fun and growth. (It’s so hard to make time!) The discussions allow for a time to chat about topics in the book and life experiences related to those topics. And it’s always non-technical.
