Welcome to the second edition of the Your Curated Kin newsletter, a monthly curation of personal stories that have shaped my personality, relationships and career. The content is inspired by my intersectional experience as a Dutchified Iranian in exile, an advocate for equality of opportunity and placing the community at the center of our programs.
I look forward to reading your comments and feedback, and I hope the content of this newsletter will add value to your life.
In this issue, you can access the second episode of Your Curated Kin podcast where I talk about how to close the gender gap by recognizing motherhood as a social function as stated in CEDAW. You can also read an article I wrote on being a Strategic Connector and the new initiative of VVD & D66 for LGBTQI+ community representation in European Politics. You’ll also find the announcement related to my new business, Somaye Dehban – Community Guardian.
