Your invite to EthiopiaBy Business Chicks | Sep 29, 14 09:07 AM
We're really excited to announce a new Immersion and Leadership Program. Apply now for our 2015 trip - we're off to Ethiopia.
At Business Chicks we love bringing women together – we create the space to foster success, support, possibility, and a lot of fun too.
One thing we’ve done from the beginning is facilitate international, game changing challenges and this is your call to get involved in 2015. In 2012 we partnered with The Hunger Project Australia and out of that grew The Business Chicks Immersion and Leadership Program. The program has proven completely tranformative for all involved and that’s why we plan to continue our partnership with The Hunger Project for years to come.
This program is not for everyone. It's an opportunity for you only if you're ready to play a bigger game and step up to your true leadership capacity.
So far we've run five programs where participants have ventured on a journey to unlock their creativity, leadership, and entrepreneurialism in tandem with some of the poorest and most marginalised women in the world. We're really excited to announce tour next trip - applications for our trip to Ethiopia are now open!
Business Chicks and The Hunger Project believe in the same thing - supporting and developing women leaders and creating a space for women to connect, stretch and make a difference in the world.
If you would like to be a part of this experience, read on.
The Journey. The journey begins upon the completion of an application, followed by a pre-trip interview and selection process. Individuals must already be or join as Premium members of Business Chicks to be selected. They must also have active membership at the time the trips occur.
The process of transformation and leadership begins through each Tripper’s commitment to fundraise or personally invest a minimum of $10,000 to The Hunger Project Australia.
A support network is created through Business Chicks and The Hunger Project communities, as the trip participants stretch beyond their comfort zone and find new limits. Past Trippers take on mentoring the new trip participants to guide them through their challenges.
Prior to departure, webinars and teleconferences are held for trip participants to distinguish leadership lessons, offer support, and learn about the pillars of The Hunger Project’s work.
The seven day immersion program allows trip participants to witness the transformation of village women from non-literate, softly-spoken, subjugated individuals to powerful leaders who come to understand that they are the key to ending poverty and hunger for their villages. Through observing the women trained by The Hunger Project and relating the experience back to personal circumstances, new possibilities arise that have us explore our role and our place in the world.
During the journey, facilitated workshops are held on the ground. Connections and relationships are formed in an exquisite and rich tapestry of love, strength and commitment. The essence of The Hunger Project comes alive in each person, as they overcome barriers and break through beliefs to what is truly possible when we come together in a shared and transformational journey.
The experience is both profound and life enriching.
You'll be introduced to a new way of helping people that's sustainable and goes far beyond aid and charity. We are so proud to be partnering with The Hunger Project Australia - together we are building extraordinary leaders.
