Soroptimist International Of Europe
As Soroptimists, we strive for the advancement of women’s status, high ethical standards, equality, development and peace, and the promotion of international goodwill and understanding.
One of the ways we achieve this is through advocacy. SIE holds general consultative status at the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and participatory status at the Council of Europe and the European Women’s Lobby. SIE also participates in the work of OSCE through its permanent representatives.
This allows SIE to advocate at the international level and lobby for the ratification and implementation of treaties concerning women and demand that priority issues for women receive their rightful place on the sustainable development agenda.
