Soroptimist International 100 år i 2021
I’m writing to you as the Chair of the SIE Congress & Centenary Event 2021 and on behalf of the Centenary Team. The 2021 SIE Congress is going to be particularly memorable because in addition to the exciting programme which our members would expect, we will also be celebrating 100
years of Soroptimist International.
The SI Centenary will be observed on a global level in San Francisco in October 2021. However, Soroptimist International of Europe wants to offer members our own party to mark the founding of the first club of Soroptimist International. These celebrations will take place on the first day of
the SIE Congress in Krakow, Poland, from 2nd -4th July 2021.
You are all invited and encouraged not only to participate in the Congress, but also to help us use this opportunity to show the best of our Federation’s Soroptimists.
We are creating a website under the motto “We stand up for Women for 100 years – SIE celebrates 100 years – 100 Soroptimists”, and we need your input to fill this website with life. I’m sure that many clubs have a standout Soroptimist who has made a difference to her club, Union or
community. Please write about her in no more than 500 words and send your nominations by 15th June 2020 to the following address:
SIECongress2021@soroptimisteurope.org. From all the entries, we will select the 100 women who best personify our ideals. Let’s commemorate the SI Centenary by celebrating our members!
Some suggestions for selection:
– someone who is a particular role model in terms of her profession or achievements
– someone who has made an extraordinary contribution to her community
– someone who embodies our values or has changed the lives of women and girls in a unique way.
The time has come for us to come out of the shadows and show the world who we are.
We need your input!!!!
We look forward to receiving your suggestions for candidates!
On behalf of the team:
