Your UN Women UK Community

A free digital home, where passionate ideas become intentional actions

With a 300-year wait for gender equality, there’s so much to do it can feel overwhelming

You’re not the only one who feels lost in the sea of action, petition, decision that comes with anxiety over the state of gender equality

Every day, we see another story that shows how equality for women is reducing. Whether it’s here in the UK or across the globe, it often feels like work in women’s rights is overlooked

Now is not the time for complacency. Change needs to happen. But how?

Together for gender equality

What if there was a place where feminists felt at home?

Where you could connect and collaborate with people who share your values?

Where you could create meaningful change that makes a real difference to our world?

A community’s a powerful place. It’s even more powerful when it’s built around a common purpose

Somewhere you can connect with like-minded people. Use your voice on an urgent issue. Discover fresh ways to create meaningful progress

When you want to take action

When you want to make it count

When you want to see a change

A community can connect you with the right people to do that

365 days of impact. From one online home

The Community was designed to create a ripple effect of change. It started with our first digital delegation to CSW (the Commission on the Status of Women) in 2022

The reaction was phenomenal, with thousands of you joining us to engage in sessions online from the comfort of your homes across the UK. But we didn’t want the impact to end when CSW was over

Enter: The Community

This is a (free) space for change, open 365 days a year. Where you can connect and network with one another but also with us. In short, the platform creates a ripple effect of change

What will you love about the Community?
