WIIS Poland was launched in November 2017 during the international conference Warsaw Security Poland as the newest affiliate of the WIIS Global. The organization was created within the Casimir Pulaski Foundation – independent and apolitical think tank, which focuses on issues from fields of foreign policy and international security.
WIIS Poland promotes women in Poland and Eastern Europe, who are invested in the peace processes – peacemaking and peacekeeping – and international security. The national chapter of WIIS in Poland is the first step to enhancing the outreach of the network of the whole organization.
The inauguration meeting of WIIS Poland will take place early in 2018, which will allow to present and discuss the plans for the first year of its activities. During the meeting, interested parties will have a chance to register for membership as WIIS Poland and gain access not only to the WIIS Global network but also to other opportunities offered by the organization – i.a. attending networking meetings, seminars and workshops, and mentoring programs.
