They provide structure in our lives, connect the community, and remind us of our values, cultural heritage and the key milestones of people’s lives, which bond us together and bring rhythm to our year. Join us with a panel of four speakers from diverse cultural backgrounds with presentations on how different cultures celebrate these significant life events. Come and hear about what we have in common and gain insights into unique cultural differences.
