Programme Action – Sharing our Skills

SoS students

Celebrating 100 Years of Soroptimism 1921-2021


There is a wealth of skills amongst our members and we are now in our third year of a programme, working with Sixth Form students from a local school.  As well as the skills of  planning Programme Action events, such as our Fashion Show,  the students have had the opportunity to meet women from a diverse range of professional backgrounds at our Business and Supper Meetings.

This is how we believe the students have benefited:

  • Developing skills in organising events
  • Understanding of workplace processes
  • Confidence in being part of a group with a cause
  • Developing social networking skills
  • Knowing there is somewhere to get help outside school and family
  • Raised awareness of the many issues facing women and girls in the world today
