We believe that education can change the world.
March 8th is International Women’s Day, a world-wide celebration of the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. This year, we at the BIWC are thrilled and honored for the opportunity to tell the world about our contribution to international women’s education!
On March 7, 2023, our organization will be on the world’s stage at the United Nations, represented by our Board member Gloria Lafont, presenting at the forum for the Commission on the Status of Women.
Education has a multiplying effect. It not only benefits the individual that receives the education, but everyone around them. It impacts their families and their communities. Many countries have limited access to education, that’s why our job is important.
Our participation is this event is only possible because of the efforts of our sister club, Welcome Clubs International, an organization that connects international women’s clubs world-wide, of which we are members.

Meet six inspiring women from around the world to learn about their organization’s accomplishments and challenges in empowering women and girls to build bridges of friendship, understanding, and education in the digital age.
About The Event
The Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) is a global intergovernmental body that promotes gender equality and women’s empowerment.
