FRIENDSHIP LINK REGISTER FORM 2021 – Please see below the Friendship Link Register Form 2021, which needs to be completed and returned to Bhaswati Biswas by 15 May 2021. Bhaswati has requested that the email contact information provided for your Club is a permanent email address, so that it will be in use no matter who the Club Friendship Link Officer is:

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY 8 MARCH 2021 – Remember to use the International Women’s Day graphic from the Centenary Toolkit on your social media posts on 8 March 2021. Or, if you prefer, use the picture frame with your members doing the #ChooseToChallenge pose.  A suggested message is “SI XXX are supporting International Women’s Day as part of the #SoroptimistsCentenary by taking part in #ChooseToChallenge.” PR, Marketing and Communications Director, Nisha Ghosh, has commissioned an artwork which can also be used. It depicts women’s role in nurturing trees. The style is in the mode of Warji, a tribal art form. The colours used are basic and the terra cotta background colour denotes earth tones .
