Annual general meeting for W.O.M.E.N in Iceland

W.O.M.E.N. in Iceland, the organization of foreign women in Iceland, was founded eleven years ago. We have been well received everywhere in Icelandic society and it is clear that there is a big need for such an organization to participate in the discourse on immigrants and human rights.

W.O.M.E.N. in Iceland is open to all women of foreign origin living in Iceland. If you are interested in sharing your knowledge, time and experience with W.O.M.E.N., you are welcome to come forward and let us know if you are interested in running for a seat on the board or would like to participate in some other way in our activities.

The annual meeting of W.O.M.E.N. will be held on Wednesday, 19 November 2014 at 8:00 pm at Hallveigarstaðir, Túngata 14, 101 Reykjavík.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at our meeting.

If you are of foreign origin and interested in running for a seat on the board of WOMEN, please send the following information about yourself to info@womeniniceland.is before November 16th:

• name
• address
• e-mail address
