Federation of Asia-Pacific Women's Association (FAWA) Convention

We (FAWA) are very much looking forward to welcoming our delegates to the beautiful island of Guam. Our speakers and workshop committee has taken our theme, of “Empowering Asia-Pacific Women through Knowledge and Opportunities” to heart and shaped a lineup of speakers and workshops that is captivating. Please see the workshop topics section of this newsletter for more details.

During the conference, a plenary session is held where key speakers talk on the different aspects of the theme of the conference. Workshops follow where the participants are given the chance to actively participate in the discussion. Reports of the workshops are presented in the plenary hall. Open-forum provides the democratic exchange of views, and in resolving issues concerning women.

Each country also makes a collated report from their affiliated organizations. This sharing provides opportunity for the other organizations to learn from each other.
