Dear IAWRT members,

We are pleased to inform you that IAWRT Tanzania has won the bid to host The 39th IAWRT Biennial Conference 2022. 

The conference dates are set from 18th to 20th of November.

The conference will highlight the interlinked crisis of the 3 C’s: Conflict, Covid and Climate change

How do these impact the lives of women and what are the challenges for us as media women?

The conference will be a hybrid physical-online event in order to secure diverse participation among IAWRTs global network. 

All chapters are encouraged to fund one or two representatives to the conference. Individual members who wish to participate physically – and thereby gain access to a series of workshops – are encouraged to start mobilizing for funding as soon as possible. 

For further inquiries or if you need documentation to present to funders, please contact the Biennial Committee ([email protected]) or the secretariat ([email protected] or [email protected]). You are also most welcome to share ideas with us! 

We hope to see many of you in Zanzibar in November!!

Warm wishes,

Bibiana Piene, IAWRT Norway (Head of Biennial Committee)
