Transcript of WGIDC Presentation - A Basic Introduction

Women's Global Initiative For Development and Change (WGIDC)
What WGIDC consists of:
A network of women from all over the world, each with a different set of valuable skills, education, experience, and perspectives. Together this network will cooperate and team up to create positive change through a number of different networking platforms.
Technical Information
So what can you do right now?
So by now, we hope you are TOTALLY PSYCHED to be part of this network!
Fundraising and Support
Support for this Organization will come from a variety of sources, both from local and international sources
To create, design, and implement ideas, projects, ventures, and initiatives that will create positive social change for women.
Purpose
Our Network (Currently)
At this time, we have 16 women from various parts of the world who have expressed interest in being part of the Network. All members were specially chosen and approached for their skills, abilities, experience, and motivation towards creating change for women.
The goal is to have a Network spanning all Continents, in which through our Networking Platforms we will be able to communicate and implement ideas across the world; and create "Capitals" on each continent where projects created by the Network can be centered out of.
1) Virtual Platforms

2) Visual Platforms



So how will you Connect with Each Other?
- Website with Forum/Social Networking Functions for collaboration

- Member Groups on prominent Social Media Platforms for both collaboration, discussion, and reaching out to public and new members

- Access to Virtual Communication Setups (Skype, Vsee, Video Conferencing)
Virtual Platforms
Visual Platforms
Bringing together women that live in geographically close areas through in-person meet-ups (in combination with virtual communications)
Hopefully no need for me!
There always seems to be some sort of "rulebook" which defines what kinds of ideas and projects that we can try to do.
Methodology and Mentality
NOTE - In future, planning workshops and conferences for the group as a whole. So you might need that airplane after all :)
but for us here, I want you to think of it like a blank piece of paper
And that is because with a blank piece of paper, there are no limits to what you can do with it!
Write the next best-selling novel!
You can fold it into cool origami shapes!
You can even make it into a hat! (how the heck did they do this anyways?!?)
And that is how I want you to think of this Network's Methodology! That there are no limitations on what areas can be explored and what issues we can tackle!
NO LIMITS!
sPORTS Programs anD CURRICULA
ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES
ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP
HEALTH ISSUES
EDUCATION AND SKILLS TRAINING
PUTTING THE SPOTLIGHT ON WOMEN'S ISSUES tHROUGH VARIOUS MEDIUMS
GENDER INEQUALITY ISSUES
JUST A FEW OF THE TOPICS AND ISSUES that you COULD EXPLORE!
AND THE DIRECTION IS TOTALLY UP TO YOU!
All that we ask from you, is that if you are interested in working on a project, that you do so! That you contribute your ideas, expertise and abilities towards creating something AWESOME!
We also want to minimize any sort of deadlines or "this needs to be done".
We all have lives, families, relationships, careers, other organizations, etc. etc. etc. and it would not be fair to put deadlines and pressure within such a venture...
So you are free to work at your pace (or the pace you decide with those you are working with) and it gives you the time and space to really create and refine the ideas and plans that you are creating!
At this time, we are exploring the best methods for registering and running this organization.
Mainly, deciding what area of the world to base the organization out of, to not limit opportunities for funding and support
* Possible Strategies including setting up in multiple countries to ensure equal reach for funding in different continents, but legal technicalities are still being researched
And building a specific Organizational Structure is a little difficult, since this is not your everyday-average organization...
*Possible Ideas include the choosing of Project Heads for Projects (chosen by the project group), possibly a Regional Head (Canada, USA, etc.) and other ideas are being experimented with.
BUT WE WILL GET THERE!
And any ideas, thoughts, or experience that could help with these specifics would be GREATLY appreciated and encouraged!
Approaches for Support will be made to the following institutions:
Private Sector Corporations (Partnerships and In-Kind Donations)
Governmental agencies and
funding agencies (Grants and Proposals For Funding)
Banks and financial institutions (Project Start-Up Costs, Financial Support)
And The Canispora Group (Along with the companies it has stakes in) will chip in all the resources they can as well
We will use internet based fundraising techniques to both raise funds and reach out to a larger audience
So here's what you can do right now...
