PWN Global Newsletter Q1 2022

Happy New Year!

Dear Members, dear Friends,

As we approach the end of January, the year has indeed got off to a flying start with lots of new projects and plans to look forward to. 

For those of you who made New Year’s Resolutions, we hope that they were good ones and that you honour yourself by sticking to those resolutions that will serve you well in 2022. 

PWN is a large, international network, and we want to strengthen its position to have more impact with political and management bodies, and also with the women we serve. Our desire is to accompany them in their development, and support them in gaining confidence and finding their unique leadership style so they can all take their place and flourish successfully. 

Our goal is to continue the growth of PWN Global with the launch of new City Network locations, and by attracting new members, and of course, retaining our strong and loyal membership base.   

We continue to develop our program offering for women, with activities including international mentoring and the Virtual Entrepreneurship Programme (VEP), for which we are closing the second season. In addition, we will continue to address the needs of, and support, companies in making gender diversity the norm - be sure to watch our for details on our new TandeMW programme, in the future.

To make these goals a tangible reality, and to boost our international network further, we need an updated platform. We are still working hard on this project and will be seeking your ideas, support and volunteer efforts to deliver this project. We will be in touch with more detailed information in due course. 

Gender Balanced Leadership in 2022

Gender balanced leadership is, and always will be our primary mission.

It is for this reason that we need to enrich our team of volunteers with committed women and men. Check out our latest volunteer opportunity descriptions, and get in touch (and please do forward the opportunities to others who you think maky be suitable candidates!). 

Let's all use the strength of the network to serve our cause.

Finally, we need partners, philanthropists and supporters to help our volunteers achieve these ambitions goals. The whole of the PWN Global team is at your disposal if you know a company, a foundation or even an individual, that wishes to support us at an international level. Let's share our knowledge and contacts to become stronger together.

Please take the time to check out some of the great articles in this first quarter edition of our newsletter: activities of our city networks, book recommendations, latest news and expert research. 

We hope you enjoy this quarter's newsletter and all the interesting articles it contains. Please feel free to share our newsletter with your own networks that you think would like to know more about the PNW Global network.

We have much to do and, of course, we are always stronger together - more than ever. 

Warmest regards,

Virginia and Nadine
