IFC Pop Ups Joburg 18 March 2020 - Notice of Postponement due to COVID-19

Out of concern for your well-being and that of the other participants, we are postponing the IFC Pop Ups Joburg scheduled for 18 March at GIBS.  This risk mitigation measure is being taken to reduce COVID-19 infection rates, especially as many of those attending work directly with vulnerable people and communities.  We will work with our partners to secure a new date as soon as it is deemed safe for people to meet in large groups again. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you have: sarahs@resource-alliance.org and ruby@resource-alliance.org


The Resource Alliance, in partnership with Nedbank Private Wealth, USB and GIBS is bringing a fresh selection of some of the best sessions from IFC 2019 in Holland to South Africa in March 2020.
