The Fierce Style Brunch is Fierce Lady Official Signature Networking & Empowering Event. This Sunday Style Brunch is part of the Soft Launch for the Network but also an extension of the #IAmFLO Campaign. The theme will be Gender Inclusivity & Mental Health, two very important conversations that need to be discussed and solutions to be drawn. Both topics affect our society creating a big gap that results to misconceptions and a rift in working together or oneness to solve unspoken about issues.
The concept is to bring people together and have discussions on pending issues that aren’t given too much attention. The Goal is to start a conversation in order to change the narrative so that the society is able to identify the problem and adapt to new ways when it comes to tackling issues of Gender division and mental health awareness.
The narrative is either blaming the women for how the males act around them or not allowing the male to be vulnerable, soft or even participative in women related work or campaigns going on. Therefore, to us, it is important we highlight the importance of both genders working together and acknowledging one another strengths, weakness and achievements.
Mental health is affecting so many of us yet due to the societal stigma, not enough voice is given to it. And part of the reason is caused by lack of Gender Inclusion, Males have been accustomed to believe that being strong is their only gateway. Being vulnerable or expressive about how they feel and their mental state isn’t something acceptable in their being.
