WFWP Norway celebrated International Women’s Day with a conference held in the Furuset Library and Activity Center on March 6, 2020. The theme of the conference was “I Want to Work: Immigrant Women’s Real Opportunities in Working Life”.
There were panel discussions held by politicians and members of the non-profit organization LIN which works for the equality and inclusion of minorities. Johanna Toresen, representing WFWP Norway, presented our work supporting women both locally and abroad. There was also multicultural entertainment and food at the event. About 100 people attended.
