As the number of members in the Eleanor Project grows through their experience with Dinner and Discussion, we will begin to host larger group events with a special invite to those who become members to join us for a social event, called Oxygen Mask Evenings.
The Eleanor Project encourages social events that work to create time for women to unwind and to take a breath. Oxygen Mask Events were named based on the theory of plane safety. In all flights before takeoff, the flight crew says “in the event of a sudden drop in pressure” an oxygen mask will drop — put on your mask first before assisting others next to you. The thinking here is that you cannot be effective helping others, unless you help yourself. Oxygen Masks events provide opportunities to unwind, relax and rejuvenate.
These are hosted throughout the year in some cases with nominal costs.
