At the congress in Jeju BPW International presented and distributed several new documents to promote the initiatives of BPW and its international partnerships internally and externally.

The Resource Sheets below help to explain to members the 3 core policy based initiatives: 1. The Women's Empowerment Principles s; 2. Equal Pay Day and 3. Women entrepreneurs. These two page promotional sheets give a brief explanation of the initiative, explain what BPW International is doing; shares examples of affiliates in terms of what they are doing at the national level; they provide ideas about what affiliates can do and end with Key Messages. They are designed for all members to be able to use and are two pages only so that they can be printed on demand by the clubs to be distributed to members and external organizations and companies.

Partnerships

 

During the triennium we built on and established new collaborations to further strengthen our advocacy efforts. Some of the exciting collaborations that we have in place are also explained in 2 page documents that are easy to read. The international affiliations means that in most cases our affiliates should be able to benefit at the local level. These explain what BPW International is doing; shares examples of affiliates in terms of what they are doing at the national level; Give ideas about what affiliates can do and end with Key Messages. They are designed for all members to be able to use and are two pages only so that they too can be printed on demand by the clubs and accessed easily by our members.

Projects


BPW International also started a great project called Project WEPs (to be changed to: Project Women’s Empowerment) to increase our outreach, support and learning of the WEPs with our affiliates.  Project Women’s Empowerment is a pilot involving some 12 countries where affiliates are invited to establish national working committees and national plans of actions over a 3 year period with the view for us to launch a working model that can be rolled out and across to all affiliates worldwide in 2016. The initial affiliates involved in this exciting project form the initial BPW ThinkTank so that we can identify Gender Specialists as a way for us to create our own pool of Gender Specialists to support each other and for advocacy purposes.  More information can be accessed at this link:
