During the month of May, the Lionesa Business Hub celebrated African culture, which left the whole community delighted. From the cuisine, to the dance, to the talks, everyone was delighted with some of the wonders that this continent has and that were represented here.
To start, Lionesa BH received Tia Orlanda, who brought her magnificent cooking, which the community loved! They were able to taste cachupa, beans with coconut and mushrooms and curry and chicken moamba. The aromas that spread through the Central Corridor left no one indifferent and everyone wanted to taste these delicious delicacies.
Mestre Aloísio brought a lot of music and animation with his kizomba and afro-dance steps, inviting everyone to participate and dance his choreographies, teaching them step by step.
Last but not least, the community had the opportunity to attend a forum, moderated by Mafalda Fernandes, creator of the Instagram page @quotidianodeumanegra and with the presence of Yara Neves, from Farfecth and Cheila Mogne from VWFS. Sensitive but highly important topics were put on the table: the conversation focused on the role black people in leadership positions, their difficulties and the barriers that still exist today due, for the most part, to racism.
By emphasising the unique experiences and identities present in its community, Lionesa BH intends to be a model an inspiration for other organisations, companies and people, embracing multiculturalism, plurality and diversity.
