About WINNET Europe

WINNET Europe, the European Association of Women Resource Centres, is an umbrella organization for Women Resource Centres (WRCs). Winnet Europe was established in 2006 by local, regional and national Women Resource Centres.

Women Resource Centres are organizations that serve as key tools for women’s active participation in regional development and growth, cross border cooperation, innovation and entrepreneurship as well as in building sustainable and gender equal regions in the European Union.

Winnet Europe’s mission is to ensure the implementation of gender equality and women’s participation on a local, regional and national level. This is achieved by lobbying for:
