Thank you to the 'Friends of IWD'

Each year, on an annual basis, proposals are invited from grassroots groups and community-focused organizations who share a passion for forging women's equality.

Friends of IWD galvanize their extensive communities and stakeholders as they deliver agreed IWD co-branded campaign activity for International Women's Day that supports and promotes the annual IWD campaign theme for awareness raising and action.

Friends of IWD comprise a different relationship from IWD Partners, IWD Supporters, IWD Collaborations, IWD Charities of Choice and IWD Flagship Event Partners. 

Friends of IWD activity is generally an IWD competition, IWD themed campaign, or IWD equality initiative - and they are always community-focused.
