We also know that each NFA has now, or has had in its history, outstanding women who have embodied the mission and vision of IFUW / GWI. We are asking each NFA to tell us about these women by sending us a short profile of no more than 2 outstanding women that we will share in digital format with the GWI family during the 2019 celebratory year. Deadline for final submission: 15 January 2019
