Empowering Together Women’s Leadership

Principle 8 highlights URI’s stance and dedication to equitable participation and inclusion of women and men in all aspects of URI work.

URI is working with 351 Cooperation Circles worldwide to enhance women’s leadership, addressing gender equality and equity, domestic violence prevention, economic empowerment, and education.

URI has taken actions to amplify the voice and action of women’s initiatives and efforts, create networks for sharing, caring, and connecting with women in different URI regions, foster collaboration, and share educational and resource mobilization opportunities to support women in the network.

A recent story from 1000 Abrahamic Circles Cooperation Circle shows the importance of involving women in interfaith collaboration, inclusion, and empowerment.
