Soroptimist International Centenary 2021

Soroptimists Celebrate 100 Years

Soroptimist International Great Britain and Ireland (SIGBI) together with Soroptimists from across the world join together to celebrate 100 years of Soroptimist International (SI) and celebrate a ‘Bright Past’ and a ‘Brilliant Future’.

When Soroptimist International reaches a milestone in its history as now, the Celebration of 100 Years of Service, it is fitting that we should look back and pay tribute to those pioneers who established Soroptimist International on firm foundations and kept the flag flying through difficult times. Each month over the next 12 months we will be showcasing 12 such women on the Centenary Website, in our #whoisshe campaign.

Check out the Centenary Website for news of our other celebrations as well, including our Tree Planting project #planttrees, our specially commissioned brooch and stamps/envelopes which are available for purchase, and our celebratory reception at the House of Lords July 2021.
