WILD is committed to women who are working for positive social change, whether as social entrepreneurs or working for positive societal change in the international development or domestically.
Our mission: to help women scale their impact – on the world, within their organizations – and keep their sanity in the process. Work-life balance, learning to delegate, taking credit for your achievements, all these issues are in the mix.
Our goal: to break through old stereotypes and limitations about what it means to be a woman functioning in the social change sector.
And, we ask, what could be more “wild” than that?
The WILD Network and Black Women in Development are hosting a Happy Hour to bring together women of color working in global development to share experiences and discuss challenges and strategies for creating inclusive environments in the workplace.
Co-Chairs of this event:
Stephanie Oueda Cruz, Head of Gender, Diversity and Inclusion at IDB
Frantzie Saint Juste, Senior Project Manager, Chemonics
Sanola Daley, Global Women's Employment Lead Manufacturing, Agribusiness and Services at IFC International Finance Corporation
Stephanie A. Kimou, Founder, Population Works Africa and Black Women in Development network
Nana Apenem Dagadu, M&E Advisor, Reproductive Health, Save the Children
Anyone who identifies as a woman of color working in international development in the Greater Washington, D.C. metro area is warmly invited to participate!
