A subject near and dear to my heart; the empowerment of women.
And here is the organization that I am personally involved with that is doing extraordinary things for women around the world: WORLD PULSE
The mission of World Pulse is the following:
“World Pulse is an action media network powered by women from 190 countries. Through our programs, we lift and unite women’s voices to accelerate their impact for the world. By connecting women through digital technology, we bring women’s voices out of the shadows and on to the world stage.”
One of the many programs WP in involved in is VOICES OF OUR FUTURE:
“We equip grassroots women to become empowered leaders and vocal agents of change through our annual online citizen journalism and digital empowerment training program called “Voices of Our Future.” Each correspondent is matched with a professional vision mentor and editorial mentor who support her to develop her vision. World Pulse publishes their stories and three correspondents are selected each year to travel to the US for our nation-wide speaking and media tour, World Pulse LIVE”
I am so proud to report that I have been chosen, along with scores of women around the world, to be a “Listener” for the Voices of our Future participants. For the next month, I will be reading and “listening” to the weekly assignments from these courageous women.
I will keep you posted.
