Women Empower Forum

The Women Empower Forum (WEF) was first organised in December 2019, by a coalition of organisations, businesses and individuals in Cluj-Napoca, as part of the global 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. It brings together exceptional women from different backgrounds, ages and professions, and offers a platform of sharing successes and challenges, and empowering the next generations of women to overcome barriers and strive for their dreams.

Our vision

Our vision is to create a more just and egalitarian future where women and girls are free to safely and fairly pursue their dreams.

Our mission

Our mission is to bring together women from different communities, sectors and professions, to share their experiences, successes and challenges, and empower the next generations of women to strive for their dreams.

Who is it for?

The Forum is for everyone, regardless of status, where you are from, or what experiences you carry with you. Despite our emphasis on “women”, we absolutely need more men to be actively involved in our pursuit towards a more egalitarian, fair and safe society. Sexual and gender-based violence is not a women’s issue. We believe that we are better together, and that diversity breeds excellence. 


  1. Challenge and change a culture of stereotypes, in order to promote empowering role models for both women and men;
  2. Build and connect a community of professionals, activists, volunteers, donors and organisations dedicated to women’s rights and gender equality;
  3. Provide a platform for exchanging knowledge and experiences,  and raising awareness on gender equality and sexual and gender-based violence;
  4. Empower and equip youth to actively pursue their dreams.
