LWF Women in Leadership: Breaking barriers

International Women’s Day is an opportune moment to raise awareness around gender equality and equal participation in the workplace and in society. The LWF has a long-standing commitment to ensure women’s equal and meaningful participation at all levels of decision-making.

This year, we celebrate past and present women leaders who bear witness to that commitment at the communion office, as well as in member churches and country programs around the globe. Women in leadership will share their stories highlighting challenges and successes, while exploring some of the concrete ways the LWF is supporting the next generation of young and upcoming leaders.

This year’s IWD also serves as precursor to the 65th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW65 15-26 March) with its focus on women’s full and effective participation and decision making in public life.
