How Will You Spend Your Summer?

"As important as it is to have a plan for doing work, it is perhaps more important to have a plan for rest, relaxation, self-care, and sleep." - Akiroq Brost, author

Summer is here and we hope you get some well-deserved down time. At TWF, our work to progress gender equality is our mission and passion, but it is also challenging work. To sustain our drive and innovation, we know that it is sometimes necessary to press pause. While many of us won’t be travelling over the next few months, we are still aiming to carve out some time for self-care and rest. And what better way to recharge than diving into a great book, an interesting podcast, a movie or attending a festival?

Here is a roundup of some of TWF’s recommendations:


Film Festivals & Exhibitions






Movies / TV Series



Whatever your plans are for the summer, do take some time out to rejuvenate. Remember that while rest often seems like a luxury, this period is actually a necessity for each of us to excel at our work, our relationships and our creative pursuits. Refreshed and re-energised, we look forward to renewing our efforts - individually and collectively - to create a gender equal city.
