International Planning Committee

The Forum’s International Planning Committee (IPC) plays a vital role in conceptualizing the Forum, forging the program, and supporting with outreach to diverse constituencies.

The IPC for this Forum played a particularly active and important role. The IPC was made up of 36 renowned women’s rights and feminist thinkers and leaders from 25 countries, representing a wide range of communities, regions and sectors. It included a vital mix of feminist economists and academics as well as activists and popular educators. As part of AWID’s commitment to ensuring a meaningful presence and participation of women’s rights activists from Turkey at the Forum, the IPC included four members in Turkey, representing distinct voices from all over the country.
