The Women’s Initiative

Women are integral to the Lions family. Through our empowerment programs, Lions Clubs International encourages women to get involved at all levels. The Women’s Initiative promotes recognition for contributions by women and raises awareness of recruitment and leadership opportunities.

New Voices LogoA new program created by International President, Gudrun Bjort Yngvadottir, the first female president of Lions Clubs International, The New Voices initiative celebrates the impact women Lions make every day. New Voices promotes gender parity by focusing on increasing the number of women in Lions clubs, as well as closing the gap between men and women in leadership positions. This initiative seeks to recognize those who champion women’s voices in one of four areas: Service, Membership, Leadership, and Marketing.

Lions Women’s Symposiums

(Formerly known as the Lions Family and Women Symposium Program) The Lions Women’s Symposiums offer Lions the opportunity to identify new potential members and community projects that are of interest to women. The Symposiums provide the knowledge to promote Lions clubs within your community as well as the resources to charter a new club or club branch to develop new community projects.

Lions Clubs International offers grants of up to $2,000 per symposium ($8,000 per Constitutional Area and Africa). For planning assistance and grant application, please see the Lions Women’s Symposium Planning Guide.

Lions Women’s Workshops

(Formerly known as the Lions Regional Women’s Workshop) These workshops explore factors surrounding the recruitment and retention of women in specific parts of the world. By offering Lions the opportunity to devise strategies to increase the number of women in membership and leadership, the workshops can provide Lions with a clear action plan for their region.

Lions Clubs International offers grants of up to $2,000 per workshop ($8,000 per Constitutional Area and Africa).  For planning assistance and grant application, please see the Lions Women’s Workshop Planning Guide.
