We had over 100 people at th reception and Global Women's educational forum went so well! We had a full house, maximum capacity! We had scholarship women from Nepal, Kenya, USA and Trinidad. Talked about women's issues, empowerment and crimes against children. Quite an international exchange that proved we are all the same:). Truly, our issues are common globally. Caring about our children, our families, and communities and wanting to improve our lives in diverse ways (professionally and personally).
Women who want to be mentored and women who want to share.
Sister societies were big hit! Pink ties everywhere... Sister Society's will start in Africa, Russia, Canada, Caribbean, Costa Rica, Australia, Washington DC, Washington state, Arizona, Florida, Illinois. And Nevada. These are in addition to our San Francisco, New York, New Jersey, and Michigan. Gosh it is fantastic!
We did an exercise on what the Network means to all of us. Diversity. Making a difference. Feeling at home. Sharing with each other. Women being unique and yet the same. Professional Development. Personal brands. Empowerment. We will share more information with you soon...
What does it mean to you? How do you get value? Let me know because that is how we will sustain the effort and engage others!
All the effort is not to say that our destination is near - we have many steps ahead in our journey and we recognize the need for constant improvement.
