Who We Are

A movement striving for mainstreaming the unheard voices of migrant and refugee women living across Europe. New Women Connectors (NWC) is a perspective-shift to the refugee agenda and advocates inclusion rather than integration as a policy choice. The movement also helps newcomer refugee especially women to lift their spirits to access to opportunities.

NWC Mission 

New Women Connectors (NWC) aims to raise awareness through organized platforms and feature the voices of refugee and migrant role models who are succeeding in life despite different challenges that come with integrating in a European city. New Women Connectors aims to create policy and perspective shifts surrounding the stereotypes that refugee and migrants, especially women, face in Europe today. The primary objective of the organization is to facilitate an open platform for sharing refugee and migrant voices, to come together and engage in individual and group everyday challenges refugees and migrants face, such as integration, participation in labor market, representation in media and education. NWC focuses on ensuring that the voices of migrant and refugees are heard and taken into account. We plan to translate those voices into policy recommendations to ensure meaningful participation of newcomers into European society. The lived experiences and skills of newcomers can lead to proposing collaborative and feasible solutions for policy platforms. It will demonstrate how inclusion of refugee and migrant voices and listening can lead to positive societal cohesion and better integration.
