Gender Equality Empowerment for All - launch of Dialogue to Action Toolkit

The UK Women of Faith Network has been involved with various projects in the past 2 years. In this celebratory event we are featuring some of our speakers, allowing time to have QA interaction and topical dicussions. We are also taking this opportunity to launch a Toolkit which we would like to share with faith / belief communities, thus providing blueprints for our network organisations to take on the work themselves in their faith traditions.
