The Women Empower Forum 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.
This year, 2020, we are offering a slightly different and enlarged Women Empower Forum, with three distinct and inter-related activities, which, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, are all happening ONLINE.
- Women Empower Forum – GLOBAL, happening on Zoom on November 25th, at 19.00 EET (UCT+2)
- Women Empower Forum – CLUJ-NAPOCA, happening on Zoom on December 4th, at 10.00 EET (UCT+2)
- Women Empower Forum – 16 Stories, where we are sharing one story every day throughout the entire 16 Days Campaign, from November 25 to December 10.
The Forum is for everyone, regardless of status, where you are from, or what experiences you carry with you. We believe that we are better together, and that diversity breeds excellence.
The 16 stories of brave and determined women across the world inspire us everyday to work towards eliminating sexual and gender based violence across the country and empowering each other to achieve our goals.
We will be sharing one story every day throughout the entire 16 Days Campaign, in an attempt to raise up the voices of women from all around the world, to shed some light on the many different challenges that women face, and to foster a community marked by empathy and courage.
