The pathway is built upon foundations of kindness, equality and giving, with an emphasis on growth and greatness. Women are taken on a progressive journey of becoming visible, finding their true voice, becoming leaders of their own lives, inspiring other women to realise their gifts and purpose. Key activities play out around a dynamic model providing a platform from which to begin a journey of change and empowerment. We create the learning environment from which women are empowered to develop a strong sense of self, a sense of the community they are part of and a sense of the wider community and society. The key concept here being women can be equipped with the knowledge, confidence and skills to make a difference in their communities, overcoming structural barriers, creating change through engagement, participation and collective social action.
As women join us from being Members to Associates those stories are built upon and the message becomes stronger as they become visible. Their lives, journeys and stories are their messages facilitating opportunities to co produce collective stories that shape, re-shape and support the constant evolution of our organisation. We see the wholeness and potential in women, not what is broken and it is from this space that we begin our connection.
Women achieve this in a variety of ways that includes:
- Engaging and connecting with other women in a safe and welcoming space that is built on equality, kindness and giving
- Realising and celebrating their gifts through a personal development journey that focuses on the woman finding her true self and fulfilling her potential
- Becoming an Associate, a Heart Centred Leader. Celebrating her voice and visibility, learning, changing and growing. Recognising her value and purpose, sharing her journey story. She uses her passion and devotion to improve the world, inspiring other women to begin their own awakening journey, turning impossible into possible.
Women are encouraged to continue to develop their skills and focus on personal development and growth through the Member to Associate Pathway. The Associate Pathway provides women with the opportunity of gifting time and paid sessional work. Women are also supported with both internal and external training opportunities to support their learning and development ambitions. This in turn creates opportunities for women to build the capacity of Members and fellow Associates and to develop projects within their own communities that are gender specific and asset led. This approach is based on how women are able to come up with their own solutions; tapping into their gifts, self organising, creating cooperative, equal spaces built on consensus, where women create something locally and inspire others to develop in their own unique way.
