WomenBeing, an Edinburgh based social enterprise, is a worldwide hub that supports the transfer of knowledge and good practices for promotion of diversity, representation, women’s rights, and equality.
We facilitate discussion and exchange of knowledge in international forums and events, focused on the main challenges facing women in today’s society, and on the ways in which we can, individually and collectively, propose solutions to these problems, and help to empower women globally and in an intersectional way (inclusive of transgender women).
We foster the social impact of academia, and public and private research, combining the knowledge of academics, charities, government, social enterprises, companies, industry, volunteer sector, and individuals, promoting work, good practices, ideas, and research that contribute to gender equality.
WomenBeing brings people together, to discover new ways to improve the lives of women and girls around the world.
We facilitate the dialogue between all agents, and make the information freely available in our blog, self-edited e-books, newsletters, and digital magazine.
WomenBeing is a women led organisation.

WIT is an international series of talks focused on connecting people through inspiration, knowledge, breaking of norms, empowerment, and networking.
Our first event, in association with Wizard Presents is linked to the show “Perfectly Imperfect Women – a biographical wonder tale“, performed by multi-award winning performer Danyah Miller during the Fringe Festival.
