FEMU and guests at the 5th International Conference of Women's Museums

GWI looks back over achievements and successes of 2016
At this year’s end, Graduate Women International (GWI) warmly thanks the continued efforts of its National Federations and Associations (NFAs) who number some 18,000 members in over 60 countries worldwide. These women tirelessly volunteer their time and expertise to empower girls and women through lifelong quality education and training up to the highest levels, through advocacy, sponsorship and projects.  GWI is also proud to announce the expansion of its international projects such as Teachers for Rural Futures, which work to address barriers to girls’ education. GWI continued to forge new and exciting partnerships to advance the mission and vision of the organisation, and to strengthen its advocacy with the valued work of the GWI United Nations (UN) Representatives and regular statements at major UN human rights mechanisms. GWI and member delegates participated actively in major gender and women’s rights events such as the Commission on the Status of Women in New York. This year was also the year of the GWI 32nd Triennial Conference, hosted in Cape Town. The city provided a wonderful setting for the GWI General Assembly to meet and to host vibrant dialogue on the theme ‘At the Crossroads of Education, Gender and Human Rights’. GWI doubled its social media presence in 2016 and sent regular press releases on international days and key issues related to women’s empowerment. GWI wishes all its members and supporters a wonderful end to 2016 and looks forward to an exciting 2017!

Education Commission release new report - The Learning Generation
If current trends continue, by 2030 – the date the international community has set for attaining quality secondary education for all – less than 10% of young people in low-income countries will be on track to gain basic secondary level skills. The costs of this learning crisis – unemployment, poverty, inequality and instability – could undermine the very fabric of our economies and societies. However, with reforms and financial investments it is possible to ensure that all children and youth are in school and learning the skills they need to be successful in work and life. A new report from the Education Commission, the Learning Generation, proposes the largest expansion of educational opportunity in history and outlines the strategy required to achieve it. Read the full report here.


— Invest in girls' education— 


GWI Geneva Office staff formed a team to run in the Geneva Escalade race on Saturday 3 December 2016 to raise funds for girls’ education. The Escalade is a Geneva road race which commemorates the successful defence of the city of Geneva against the neighbouring Dukes of Savoy in December 1602. The team of eight staff, their family members and interns successfully completed the race and raised awareness of violence against women and girls as a barrier to education by wearing orange t-shirts. We need your help to reach our goal and there’s still time to show your support for this cause -  donate to the Escalade fund by 31 December 2016!
