About the Event

Please join us for Voices of New Women, a one-of-its-kind inspirational event at BAK in Utrecht! The symposium is for and by refugee and migrant women from all cultural backgrounds, to not only learn, connect and share, but also to build more inclusive policies; celebrating women’s resilience and ideas & strategies worth spreading. The symposium, which is part of the project Trainings for the Not-Yet at BAK, provides an opportunity for refugee and migrant women to connect and share stories and knowledge, in order to explore ways in which they can empower themselves.

Following presentations by invited speakers, small groups discuss key topics such as social-economic integration, social support (or lack of), and access to opportunities. Voices of New Women is open to attend for all refugee and migrant women, but also invites diaspora representatives, migrant organizations, policy advisors, researchers, and practitioners working in the field of migration to join in. Although this event centres on women’s experiences, men who are supportive and respectful of these struggles are also welcome to attend!

The event will provide refugee and migrant women with the opportunity to get involved with a diverse network and share stories and experiences. Join a meaningful discourse around the existing challenges, and get support in taking big new steps in your lives!
