What comes after cultural disenfranchisement? After Expat Harem, the book? After expat+HAREM, the community site? In this live-recorded talk I chart the evolution of my own global niche, along with expat+HAREM’s spin-off project: Globalniche.net.
Talking at the inaugural Istanbul “Dream, Play, Achieve” event of Turkish Women’s International Network at Microsoft Turkey (view the 10 minute TurkishWIN video here if the embed below doesn’t work for you), I mapped a 15 year journey and gave a sneak peek into a new initiative expat+HAREM is developing: a private, educational and support community to equip people like us with the skills and tools tailored to our particular challenges.
Consider joining Melek Pulatkonak’s Turkish Women’s International Network if you’re a professional woman who is an overseas Turk, repatriated Turk, Third Culture Turk or a foreign woman with ties to Turkey.
