The Scottish Women’s Convention was set up by the Scottish Executive in 2003 in recognition of the need to ensure women’s voices are reaching policy makers. The Scottish Women’s Convention works to develop ways in which to ensure women in Scotland can influence the strategies and policies which affect them.
The Scottish Women’s Convention is funded by the Scottish Government to communicate and consult with women in Scotland to influence public policy. Through our policy work, round table and celebratory events, the SWC strives to have contact with all women and relevant organisations in Scotland. The SWC provides an effective way of consulting with a diverse range of women and has a network of over 300,000 women including women in Business, Churches, Trades Unions and Voluntary Organisations.
