Women-identifying & NB folk Online Get-together
Due to the changing conditions with COVID-19, we have again decided to move to an online meeting via a web-based application called Zoom. See below for more about what Zoom is.
This is an exciting and liberating opportunity to connect with other women and NB people on the spectrum, BYO cuppa! Age is no limit! All women-identifying & NB gender folk welcome. So let's come together online and have a general peer discussion to discuss how we've been managing, share ideas and concerns and ensure we find some calm in this situation.
Cost: $5 (AV Members) or $10 (Non-Members) Please do still register prior to attending with your registration. Email email@example.com if you need assistance to do this.
The get-together is facilitated by Aspie women, for Aspie women and is very informal. Once you have attended your first group you are able to join our Facebook group where we may organise catch-ups such as bushwalking in the Dandenongs and other shared passions, once lockdown is over! Aspergers Victoria volunteers with lived experience run all meetings and welcome new attendees.
