START YOUR OWN STUDENT SOCIETY

IF THERE ISN'T A WOMEN FOR WOMEN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SOCIETY AT YOUR UNIVERSITY YET, WHY NOT START ONE?

Starting up a student society is a great opportunity to lead and shape your own programme of activities, gain experience and key skills, whilst contributing to a cause you care about.

We'll give you all the support you need to set up and lead your own society. Email Victoria on vnoble@womenforwomen.org to start a conversation about setting up a society at your university today.

As a society, we feel it is such an honour to be able to come together to support our sisters all over the world, facilitated by this wonderful charity.

Emma Morris, President of St Andrews Women for Women International Society

5 TOP TIPS FOR GETTING STARTED:

  1. Get in Touch - Email Victoria on vnoble@womenforwomen.org to discuss the exciting opportunity of setting up a new student society.
  2. Start Networking - Tell your fellow students about Women for Women International’s work and encourage your campus to get involved!
  3. Advertise - Start thinking about representation at Fresher’s Fair! It’s the single biggest opportunity to get your name out there, recruit new members, and collect new contact details, so make the most of this day or two.
  4. Follow Up - Keep the students who have shown interest in the society engaged by sending them an email following the Fair. Make them part of the operation, tell them how the Fair went and share an inspiring video about Women for Women International’s work.
  5. Host a Launch Event - Organise a launch event soon after the Fresher’s Fair. Your event should raise awareness about women in war torn countries, and will hopefully motivate members to stay actively involved.
