Women Unity
The Women’s Solidarity Network (WSN) is the Women’s Committee of the International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers (IFPTE) and is open to all members of the IFPTE.

WSN has been formed to support our Union in our fight for fairness and equality for all workers. WSN is a vehicle to inspire, highlight, demonstrate, educate, share and enlighten everyone on issues/struggles/successes women face in the workplace and in society.

The IFPTE Women's Committee’s goal is to:
  • Unite women members for the purpose of addressing their concerns and issues.
  • Promote women's involvement and recognition within their locals
  • Strengthen solidarity within the union.
