We value the diversity of women regardless of race, age, sexuality, class, religion and as minorities
We uphold solidarity in all aspects of women’s lives through trust, generosity, kindness and compassion
We value every woman’s experience and participation
We work to build peace to create an environment of empowerment and safe space to end injustice, violence and discrimination, both inside and outside of IWE
