Two of our board members attended the General Assembly for the European Women’s Lobby in Brussels 7-8 June: Annelies Pierrot – Bults, executive member of the assembly, Treasurer and Aisha Alshawaf as an Observer.
The theme was making Europe work for women, EWL envisions a society in which women’s contribution to all aspects of life is recognized, rewarded and celebrated .
We had an interesting, stimulating and productive agenda dealing with strategic review emphasizing gender equality in EU manifesto and Gender equality in trade policy .
Our time during those days contributed to Alliances with other organisations to influence change we defiantly have shared strategy with like minded organisation cross the board from European countries. A time well spent and will bring positive energy to UWE, hopefully you will join us in Geneva and get more details from Annelies on her work with EWL economic working group.
