Missing those water cooler talks? Missing the lunchroom banter and getting the real scoop on what’s going on? So join our WUDI’s first Lunchroom series, featuring committee members Sheryl Peters and Suzana Goncalves in this casual conversation as they discuss the convergence of public and private housing, market trends, who’s buying, types of social housing and how the public and private sector can work together.
The Women of UDI have a community partnership initiative which seeks to support charities, NPOs and people in need. For this event, the Women of UDI have chosen the Aboriginal Front Door Society. All net proceeds from this event will be donated to the organization. Thank you for your support!
