Last month of November in Kazakhstan, we recorded our very first webinar on storytelling for female gamechangers and it is now available on Udemy!

After training thousands of women around the world, from Spain to Pakistan, from France to Jordan, we wanted to give you the possibility to follow this training at your pace, wherever you are so here it is in English and in French!

We have an amitious goal for the coming year:

To help us reach that goal, feel free to share our course with all your friends! Sisterhood is powerful!

On December 19th, the 10 finalists of the 4th edition of the Danone Eres Impulso competition of Spanish female social entrepreneurs had to pitch their project in less than 5 minutes to convince the members of the jury.

After long reflexion and deliberation, we finally decided to allocate the 2 cheques of 10.000 euros to the following projects: HUSK Ventures, converting rice husk into organic biochar to build resilience for smallholder farmers and Desnudate Autoestima, working with young women who have suffered eating disorders to regain empowerment and self-esteem.

We wish good luck to the 2 winning projects and hope they will have an even greater impact in 2019!

Our friend Ai Khafizova in Kazakhstan helped us produce the lessons in French and English. These webinars will give us yet another medium to educate and spread awareness around the world. Stay tuned for our publication of these online courses in December!
