Women and Girls Reaching Their Full Potential

Our Vision Statement: We envision a world in which all girls and women reach their fullest potential for global transformation, holding compassion as our driving force.

In the past 2 days, women have been convening, pulled together by a powerful magnetic force. Perhaps it is a biological tendency to gather, tend and befriend, comfort, share, listen, weep and strategize how to protect our children, communities and our mother Earth. The US election has awoken the world and the uncertainty makes us feel vulnerable and tender. Many are angry, many are baffled, some are righteous, and most are scared. Regardless of your political position, you cannot escape the tension because we are all one human family. We are connected at a deeper level than our politics. Women are feeling an aching in their womb. What if that aching is our own power looking for an outlet for healing?

Marianne Williamson said it clearly, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure”. It’s in simply knowing this that we can find our authority. The Women and Girls sector, made up of our Partners and served by a global task force and ambassador program, is proving that together we are indeed powerful beyond measure and we have the Charter for Compassion as our most valued tool. Just look at our Women and Girls Partners who are working with fierce compassion to improve conditions for women and girls around the world. Do you belong as a Partner of the Women and Girls sector? Let us know.

As we seek ways to manifest change in the world around us, the Charter for Compassion could not be more relevant than at this time in history. These 4 impeccable paragraphs have proven to be a critical tool for transforming communities and it's a good time to revisit it and remember what we signed up for, especially now, when it's not always comfortable.

March 2017 Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) at the United Nations in NY in March 2017
We are proposing a workshop at the Commission on the Status of Women, where more than 5,000 women will ascend on the UN to address our world’s most pressing issues. We are proposing a workshop entitled, “Women Voices: How Fierce Compassion is the Great Catalyst to Accomplish the UN Sustainable Development Goal for Women Equality."

Since the Charter was launched in 2009, we’ve understood more deeply that every resilient, innovative community, institution or partnership in the world is stitched together with the thread of compassion. In our dangerously polarised world, compassion is the only route to a safe, just, peaceful and viable world.

Your gift is essential to realizing the transformative potential of the Charter for Compassion. Thank you for your support of the Charter for Compassion and the important work that lies ahead.
