For all the registered participants to the V International Woman, Work and Health Congress, we invite you to propose or participate in any organization forums. Such Organization Forums are an innovative format that intent to fulfill with one of the congress’s objective, which approach is to go further the discussion about the subjects that matter to women workers, activists, investigators, legislators and businesswomen, responsible, cooperative, employee, etc. with regard to work and health of the women, allowing to hold in the congress, meetings in order to discuss the actions to be followed about specific aspects, taking advantage from the participant assistance from different countries, sectors and organizations.

Ten organization forums are anticipated to be made. The Organization Committee from the Congress will offer three physical spaces, for two hours each one, Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29 and four spaces Thursday 30. Each one of these sessions shall have the support of a bilingual facilitator. The subject of the forums can be promoted in advance in this web site so the women participants can register to the foreseen forums in advance.

It is foreseen that the idea for some of these forums rises from the simultaneous discussion sessions, in these cases the congress’s organizers shall inform the process to be followed, and those who are interested shall register directly in the room in which these sessions shall take place. It will be possible to use the designated spaces depending on de quorum. The success or compliance of the agreed post-congress activities in each forum will be responsibility of the people and organizations that announce and are involved in them and with the resources that one or more of those people an organizations provide.
