AWID Members at the Forum

In the lead-up to the Forum we engaged closely with members to encourage their participation as session presenters and participants via our newsletters and webinars.

The AWID Membership Area at the Forum was a strategic point of convergence where Forum delegates connected and learned about AWID. AWID welcomed 119 new institutional and individual members at the Forum.

The Membership Meeting with AWID’s Executive Director and Board President to celebrate AWID’s 30th anniversary, discuss key achievements and introduce new members to AWID was so popular (in the evaluation survey nearly 75% of those who attended it gave it a high “useful” rating) that we held the meeting a second time.

“This is to express my sincere gratitude for the opportunity given to me to attend the AWID Forum in Istanbul... It was a rewarding experience, being in the midst of all those wonderful feminists and activists sharing experiences and strategies, has indeed impacted positively in my life. For the first time, I actively participated in a protest march, very fulfilling and an experience I will not forget!”
