IFMA boosts collaboration with UN Women

A productive meeting took place between IFMA’s Social Responsibility Unit and UN Women’s UNiTE Asia Pacific team to discuss further cooperation. IFMA has been proud partners with UN Women especially in their UNiTE to End Violence Against Women Campaign since the signing of the MoU in 2013, which has led to worldwide awareness campaigns, through events, national federations and athletes.
