On October 31st, 2010, Nneka MacGregor spent the day with Board Director Hazviperi Betty Makoni (Muzvare), Chief Executive Officer and Founder of the GirlChild Network Worldwide, at Betty’s home.
Later, Nneka had the honour of co-hosting on Betty’s on-line radio show, where they were in conversation with Marine Raime, founder of Betterdays Cancer Care, and Barbara Mhangami, athlete and clinician who were the guests that night. The focus was on women of colour, health and wellness, specifically breast cancer.
On May 19th, WomenatthecentrE held our first fundraising event – the 3 Degrees of Sisterhood Dinner, organized by our creative consultant ReiCura.
Approximately 50 women gathered at Olivia’s at 53 to enjoy the prix fixe 4-course dinner. The night raised money to support the training initiatives WomenatthecentrE delivers to it’s members, such as workshops on self-representation in the family courts.
The 3 degrees represented the fact that every woman in the room was seperated by at most 3 degrees, and reminded us that are all no more than 3 degrees away from a woman who has experienced gendered violence.
Mothers and daughters, sisters and best friends, all turned up on a perfectly sunny evening to enjoy the live music and professional photography courtesy of the exceptionally talented Light Monkey Photography team.

On May 2nd the exceptionally talented photography duo Mark and Terri from Light Monkey Photography came to WomenatthecentrE’s offices to photograph the incoming Board of Directors. With hair beautifully sculpted by Linda Amoroso and Dawn Aloe of Rhome, and makeup skillfully applied by Annette King-Alexander, the members of the board looked stunning!
It was such a fun-filled experience for everyone – and pizza and wings helped!
