Create Your Own Program for the Conference

Published: Sep 9 2015

We are proud to announce the programme of the 3rd World Conference of Women’s Shelters. The programme combines keynote speeches from for example Dr. Mukwege, Hina Jilani and Michaelia Cash, with contributions from care workers and participants worldwide.  

For the first time in the tradition of the World Conference of Women’s Shelters, it is possible to put together your own parallel programme. Dozens of speakers will draw you into their stories and experiences. But what appeals to you? Which subjects do you want to learn more about? Now, by choosing the subjects of your interest, you can make most from your participation. 

How does it work?
