October 2021 will be a huge milestone for Soroptimist International (SI), as we celebrate 100 years as a Global Voice for women and girls! As we begin the countdown, a year-long campaign will reflect on our past, celebrate our present, and look forward to the future. As part of the celebrations, SI is introducing new and exciting ways for Soroptimists around the world to connect with one another, and to share the SI vision and message far and wide.
SI Voices - the Webinars
The SI Voices programme of webinars has now commenced, reflecting the key topics of the SI Road to Equality President's Appeal, 2019-2021. Hosted by SI President, Sharon Fisher, and Appeal co-ordinators, Olga Sidenko, and Ayushi Kundu, the 1-hour webinars introduce a mix of speakers to engage and educate on subjects including the Rights of Older Women, Female Genital Mutilation, the Trafficking of women and girls, and more.
You can watch the webinars on our dedicated page on the SI website, or on our YouTube channel.
The SI Voices series of podcasts launched on 3 October. Hosted by Soroptimists and friends, episodes so far include a fantastic interview with SI President Sharon Fisher and a history special revealing the story of how our global organisation first started.
