Networking, courses and seminars
The MiRA Center invites to theme evenings in our premises at Storgata 35a. We want our users and our network to have the opportunity to meet and discuss current topics concerning girls and women with a minority background. The meetings start with contributions from invited resource persons. Then it opens for discussion between the presenters and other participants. The MiRA Center regularly arranges seminars that deal with current topics for girls and women with a minority background.
The MiRA Center is a place for self-organization where we put emphasis on networking both locally and nationally. We want the position of minority women in society to be strengthened so that they become visible on their own terms. The center also organizes annual networking seminars for women and young girls. The seminars are intended to create an arena for debate on important integration issues.
