Building Best Pactices to Serve Women & Girls - Call for Proposals

The Women, Information, & Libraries Special Interest Group in partnership with Libraries without Borders invites you to submit proposals for our session around Building Best Practices to serve Women & Girls at the IFLA World Congress in Athens, Greece, August 24-30th.

We are looking for proposals that outline concrete examples of how you have successfully or unsuccessfully reached out to and supported women and girls in your local community, gotten them into your spaces, attended your events, and what you have learned from those experiences. We are hoping for a wide variety of experiences from serving women and girls in cities, rural areas, indigenous communities, refugee camps, and everything in between.  We plan to build off these experiences during the session to publish a series of best practices and thematic kits to train actors around the world in empowerment of women and children across the globe.

Submit your abstract before March 10th to
