Embracing Cultures

Toastmasters Club #8741


“The mission of our unique, all-women Embracing Cultures Toastmasters Club is to provide a positive, mutually supportive and safe learning environment in which every member has the opportunity to develop communication and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth.  This transformational experience is a natural result of practicing public speaking.”


We value true diversity in age, religion, culture, nationality, immigration status, and worldview. We are dedicated to broadening our horizons and developing ourselves personally by sharing stories from our home cultures. We want to express ourselves in a safe, non-judgmental space. We embody integrity, we communicate with confidence, and we lead and inspire others. We value female empowerment, honest feedback and mentoring. We discuss all issues openly, particularly the topic of what it means to be a woman in various geographical, political, and social contexts.


We promise to inspire you! We promise to start our meetings promptly at 7pm every Tuesday. We promise to answer emails and phone calls from fellow members. We promise to research our assigned meeting roles and come fully prepared. We promise to greet guests and make them feel welcome. We promise to be open and willing to do things that make us uncomfortable because we understand this is the only way to grow.
