Are you wondering how to succeed in the development industry and what stands out in your CV? Are you thinking about what it is like to work abroad or with aid? Or are you just in awe of women taking their place in an otherwise male-dominated world? Either way, this is an event for you. In the spirit of International Women's Day, we take the chance to learn, be inspired and motivated by each other, do you too!
On International Women's Day on March 8 at 17.45 FUF Stockholm Södra welcomes you to an inspiring launch event for Women in power – a magazine with a focus on cool and successful women in the development industry. During the evening, the local group Stockholm Södra will pay attention to the magazine, a project that took place during the fall of 2022, and some women who are featured in the magazine will participate in a panel discussion focusing on their work, setbacks and how they see the future in terms of their work areas.
Date and time: March 8 at 17.45-19.30
Location: FUF's office at Ehrensvärdsgatan 4, 115 60, Stockholm
Arranged by: FUF Stockholm Södra

About the organizer and the magazine
FUF Stockholm Södra is run by committed non-profit active young people and students who are passionate about raising global development issues. Together, we want to increase knowledge and debate about global challenges and Sweden's role in the world. As a member of FUF Stockholm Södra, you can choose to join one or more working groups based on what you are interested in! Today, FUF Stockholm Södra has the following areas of activity: the event group, the PR/Marketing group, the book club, the Podcast group and the study visit group.
The project Women in power was launched in the fall of 2022. The vision was to, through a magazine, lift up successful and cool women in the development industry to inspire young people on their way out into working life. It is with pride and gratitude that we now want to present the magazine Women in power.
