“GWI Day” (28 July 2019)
“GWI” Day activities personify the vision of our Founding Mothers: graduate women who through friendship and mutual respect can work across country borders to advance human rights.
Today more than ever before, the world needs an organisation that transcends country borders to unite women in a common cause. GWI with NFAs in 54 + countries is such an organization.
A renowned Futurist will guide us through a changing global landscape and will help us understand how we can renew our relevance in changing social, economic and political times.
Regional, Counterpart and Committee meetings will strengthen our organizational structures, bring clarity to how we can operate more effectively and offer new opportunities for collaboration across country borders.
“GWI Day” is an essential for the growth and development of GWI and all of its NFAs.
