I feel very proud to be a member of the Commonwealth of www.empowerwomen.org, launched by UN Women and participating online platform session of ICT for economic empowerment of women and poverty reduction in CSW58 where experts like Microsoft, WorldPulse, Nielsen, ITU, The Guardian Liz Ford, Susan Truppe, Intel and the World Bank shared their inspiring visions for change and experiences .

The need to use the Power of media and its potential to connect women and bring all to a global voice is one of the reasons why they committed their work "to connect to the World" , tackling the development agenda and issues of the new millennium.

The freshness that comes with youth and the dreams of girls are a source of hope for the connection will pay off harvest

Thank you for sharing the Big Dream Movement encouraging women to be producers of technology. I also believe it is important to have women not only be comfortable consumers of technology, but also become knowledgeable, savvy and innovative in inventing and producing technology. This will transform our world and grow our economies.

Keep reaching and sharing!
In hope and peace,

I think technology and the internet are a celerador impact at work generate resources and information to empower women and girls.
There is an existing reality that finding resistance in its exist and in many countries lack the enforcement of laws, protocols and relevant reports.
Big Dream Movement is a very big initiative raises a different global strategy rather than vertical or horizonal , information and power unfold spiral, with a continuous stream giving and asking for our feedback.
On the other hand the nature of the model proposes a connection and exchange in the networking where members are linked much more rewarding than the old pyramid and hierarchical manner.
Adding us various approaches we will win a lot, I am very optimistic about this!
With love and gratitude

Knowledge Sharing

Thank you so much Carol for sharing such pertinent information on this forum. Am personally glad that big corporations such as Microsoft have finally seen the need to include women and youth in this technology era, women and youth have a lot to offer as they are part of the users of science and technology. They naturally would be able to contribute new perspectives in the innovation process of technology, leading to better products and services. I will keenly follow this initiative and believe that the future is definitely brighter and better technologically as a result of this partnership with the mentioned alliances.

A real Revolution

Hi Barbara! Definitely so many large corporations are putting their work in action and much better even people who work in them are encouraged to engage.

I think the business vision with the experience of Melinda&Bill Gates and many other companies but, this time, oriented Philanthropy and individual growth of women and girls for the development communities will make the Internet and ICTs to expand generating Awareness, Production and Consumption.
And we are in the wave a bit to pass on what we know about, stimulate and also as a way to Learn and Connect..
Thanks for sharing!!

With Peace and Love
