We have chosen four of the UN Days around which we will create a toolkit to be used by Clubs. Do get involved on social media to raise awareness and get our voices heard. Use our suggested messages, images and press releases.
The four days that have been chosen are: International Women’s Day, World Environment Day, SIGBI Day of Action and 16 Days of Activism.
We will create a toolkit for you to use for each of these four days.
16 Days of Activism 2021
The 16 Days of Activism against Gender based Violence take place between 25 November and 10 December each year.
2021 marks the 30th anniversary of the Global 16 Days Campaign. Inspired by the original vision and history of the Campaign, which focused on raising awareness about violence against women (VAW), and considering the continuing impunity for femicide, this year the Campaign will focus on the issue of “femicide or the gender-related killing of women.”
Please print the poster below (pictured above) and display in any local establishment that you can to raise awareness:
There are 17 images below. The first is an introductory image which can be used before the 16 Days, and there is one image for each of the days, with a relevant message, to accompany your social media post. Click on each image to open the large version, then right click on it and “Save As Image”:
SIGBI Day of Action Toolkit – 17 July 2021
The SIGBI Day of Action on 17 July 2021, the theme is Climate Change, so the toolkit below, which was produced for World Environment Day, can be re-used.
It is vital that we reduce our carbon footprint, so we are providing the following links and images for Social Media. There are also some links to lesson plans on Carbon Footprints, which can be forwarded to schools that you are involved with.
Calculate your Carbon Footprint: https://clevercarbon.io/ Use this revolutionary new carbon quiz to calculate your carbon footprint and share it online! It’s free and only takes 2 minutes!
Share the graphics below. The first three are similar but for different social media platforms:

SIGBI Day of Action Video
The SIGBI Day of Action is on Saturday 18 July 2020.
The theme for this day was originally Climate Change, but with the situation we have been in since the beginning of the year, the theme is now #SoroptimistsConnect.
How are you connecting with each other and with your local community during lockdown? Use this opportunity to let the world know what you are doing to help during the pandemic. Remember to use the hashtag #SoroptimistsConnect.
A toolkit has been developed for Members, Clubs, Regions/National Associations/Networks to use. Click on the relevant item below to download it for your use. A video for sharing will be available nearer the date:
Social Media Headers and post ideas for the SIGBI Day of Action
The top item is a selection of suitable messages (in WORD for easy copying and pasting) that can be used on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
The items below are various images, that you can use on the different platforms, either as your header or within a post. Some have an image already inserted so that you can just use it, and others (labelled blank) have a space to add your own image, which you can do in Publisher, PowerPoint or Canva.
This year, National Volunteers’ Week is running from Monday 1st June to Sunday 7th June.
Here is another opportunity to celebrate your volunteering work, sharing your stories on your websites and through social media channels. Whether you’re volunteering to support the NHS, other organisations or charities, or you are volunteering in your local community or supporting an international project, tell your story and use the logo and the hashtag #Soroptimistsvolunteer. If you tag us in on Facebook Soroptimist International GBI and on Twitter @SIGBI1 we will like, share and retweet too. And make sure you do the same for all the other posts you see from other Clubs, let’s let everyone know #Soroptimistsvolunteer. There are two versions of the logo below which you can use with your posts.
World Environment Day is on 5 June 2020. Soroptimist International Great Britain and Ireland (SIGBI) have provided social media messages for Clubs/Regions/NAs/Networks and Members to use throughout this day. The theme is #ForNature, and two images are also provided for you to include with your social media posts. We will not circulate a survey on this occasion to evaluate the reach.
Soroptimist International Great Britain and Ireland (SIGBI) have provided a toolkit for Clubs/Regions/NAs/Networks and Members to use during International Women’s Day 2020, promoting this year’s theme, An Equal World is an Enabled World.
We encourage Soroptimists everywhere to create their social media posts using the bespoke messages that we have produced, tailored for Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, and adding a photograph of themselves doing the Equal Sign, using the frames provided (as in the example shown) – simply use PowerPoint or Publisher to add your photograph. You can also use any of the pictures that are in our Flickr album.
The hashtags to use are #SoroptimistsStandUpforWomen, #EachforEqual, #GenerationEquality
Use the press release to let your local media know about your campaign.
