Mission Statement

The Delegation for Friendship among Women is a non-political organization that nurtures friendship between women from the U.S. and other countries, and seeks nuanced understanding of women’s work and lives throughout the world.

The Delegation accomplishes its mission primarily by self-funded study trips to countries where formal relations with the U.S. are often in transition. Delegates meet with a variety of notable women with whom we exchange ideas and solutions, as well as links to relevant resources. Upon returning to the United States, Delegation members continue the purposeful dialogue with the women abroad, and share knowledge and insights with other U.S. citizens through speeches and articles.
