ID Women’s Empowerment (ID WE) http://www.idwomen.org is the first international leadership training camp created to unveil the talent and power of young women from around the world who want to give a substantial step in their personal and professional growth, acquiring a transformative vision of their role in the 21th Century -also called “the century of women”- and deepening their knowledge on female leadership and empowerment, while living a life changing experience in a US University campus.
ID WE provides an intensive training focus on leadership development within a framework of cultural exchange, mentoring and networking experiences. Through an 11 – day training program and shared experiences with peers, the program seeks to empower participants by developing their’ leadership potential and promoting their inclusion, credibility and visibility.
Through the contributions of highly regarded speakers and prestigious academic experts, participants will learn about the role of women in society, gender management, personal and work life balance, negotiation, and personal marketing.
In addition, ID WE seeks to improve networking, mentoring and team building among participants by providing recreational and social activities.
Generally speaking women around the world are still absent in negotiations or have very little say in the decision making process. ID WE seeks to change this by raising awareness about such issues by working to create a learning environment. This will present new opportunities for participants to acquire the necessary tools to participate in relevant decision-making processes.
Participant will achieve:
• Awareness: Without women participating in the decision making process we suffer the loss of their input and half of Humanity is being left out.
• Understanding: Women’s participation in important decision making is both valuable and transforming.
• Leadership skills: Participants will identify and develop their unique leadership characteristics.
• Empowerment: Upon return to their communities, participants will be better equipped and energized to make a difference in their respective countries.
