13 women, two countries, countless conversations: participants in the UK-Poland Peer Ex project, who met face-to-face in Warsaw last week, had plenty to share.

Our UK-Poland Peer Exchange focused on women’s rights. Participants met online and then spent two days working together in Warsaw.
The project aimed to support civil society organisations working for women’s rights and equality, giving them the opportunity to gain new ideas and links across borders.
This will strengthen their contribution to building a more equal society in both countries:
- To increase the capacity of women’s CSOs in Poland and the UK to deliver change and strive for a more equal society
- To foster people-to-people ties between Polish and British women’s CSOs to stimulate further peer learning and future cooperation
- To showcase progress towards equality in Poland and the UK and celebrate the contribution of women’s CSOs
PeerEx UK/Poland was supported by the British Embassy in Poland and organised together with local partner Kongres Kobiet (Congress of Women).
