About SOTL Global Movement

During SOTL Greece’s Initiative, a Global MOVEMENT was born;  our movement is inspired by the ISO 26000 standards and aims to unite women in order to specify and implement the principles and the ways that women stand in the cigar world.
SOTL Global Movement’s mission is to introduce women to the cigar world, to inspire and lead them to extraversion, to empower them to raise their voices, to motivate them to create cigar communities, and in collaboration with men, to develop a better environment for aficionadas and aficionados.

                                           SGM Advisory Board                                

The Advisory Board advises, guides, and supports the mission of SOTL GLOBAL MOVEMENT (SGM). It’s main purpose is to advise on the direction and strategy of the SGM, and by generating and giving feedback on certain proposals for development.


The Advisory board is a volunteer group, formed to contribute to the spread of the vision of SGM and assist on implementing the  principles of SOTL Memorandum of Understanding into the cigar industry.

The Goal to go Global


Written by Keya McClain

Sisters of the leaf on a movement 

And we are ready for the cigar world improvement

To create a unified position

The true definition of a mission

Women who have love for the cigar

Despite the glances and stares that our retreat is bizarre. 

We realize we are individual shining stars

Each time we smoke we create memories to add to our memoir

Although we are not keeping score

Our intent is to make that pour

Just right

As we sip and smoke and allow our light to shine bright

Internationally on the move

We are in a groove
