Message from the WIIS Brussels Steering Committee


We hope this message finds you all safe and healthy.

In these times of crisis, we think it’s important to feel - and to be - part of a community. At WIIS Brussels, we pride ourselves on empowering women, strengthening their voices on security and defence matters, but above all, for being a tight and supportive group of individuals.

Due to the COVID 19, we’ve had to cancel some of our events. And as things currently stand, we probably won’t be seeing each other face-to-face for a little while. But we want to keep in touch, support each other and continue to build and strengthen our WIIS community.

Although difficult, this is also a time to reorganise, be creative and find new ways to connect. That’s why we are exploring options to continue to offer activities and trainings online. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook and join in some discussions, or start one yourself! Tell us how you are experiencing the current situation, how it is changing you and your daily routines. Your ideas are most welcome, so please reach out if you have any!

Whether you are alone or with your family and your loved ones, the current situation is difficult for us all. But hopefully, we can make it just a little less lonely and stressful. And a lot more creative and inspiring.
