Women Worldwide setting up for launch
Women Worldwide is a new up-and-coming organisation created to host experiential conferences to empower and inspire women.
Founder Susan Ma left her full-time job as a Specialist Investigator to work as a freelancer and set up the organisation which she hopes will “join people together to create solutions for global gender issues”.
Like many similar organisations, Women Worldwide aims to raise awareness of 21st century gender-related issues such as sex slavery, maternal mortality, domestic violence, honour killings, pornography and reproductive health.
However, Women Worldwide hopes to provide an additional layer for the women attending these conferences by tailoring the focus towards a more forum-based format.
The conferences will create an experiential experience so that women at all levels can collaborate by creating solutions together where everyone can contribute from the key inspirational speakers and organisations to those simply wishing to donate their spare time.
The type of solutions supporting individuals and organisations may create can be as basic as “volunteering their time and donating” to looking at how their own particular specialism could be transferred to supporting these causes.
The conferences will be focusing on combining their audiences with brilliant thought leaders to create an environment where solutions can take a real effect by directly helping women at home and abroad.
The first of Women Worldwide’s conferences will be a full one-day conference launching, appropriately, on International Women’s Day next year – 8 March 2013.
Speaking to Women’s Views on News Susan Ma said: “Our first conference will map the key issues, identify and highlight good current initiatives with a view to actively promoting projects that are actually effective in the field (the amazing grassroots charities).
“The conference will also provide a format which every person attending may say how they might become actively involved.
“In short, it will be an inspirational event that calls for action.”
Women Worldwide is currently recruiting speakers and sponsors for the event.
