Welcome back STIU students from the term break. Your Insider is eager to tell you about an opportunity to gain worldwide recognition for your contributions. You probably know the United Nations or simply UN, don’t you? Well, in 2010 UN created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. It was created to help women all over the world to get access to basic education and health care, decent work and a living wage, as well as the right to take part in political and economic decision-making processes.
Most likely, you are wondering why your Insider talks about it. Well, we are happy to tell you that for the first time a Stamford student, Munashe Sharon Nyatanga, has become a participant in the program “Empower Women Global Champion for Change Programme” organized by UN Women. The program aims to raise awareness about empowering women in different fields all over the world. Sharon has joined the program because she wants to help other girls and women to finish their education and develop their professional skills despite their backgrounds.
The program has great benefits such as:
- an opportunity to connect with other social innovators, advocates and agents of UN Women;
- individual access to over 2500 resources of cutting-edge content for personal growth and development;
- a possibility to transform your ideas into real action and to take your career to the next level;
- worldwide recognition as acknowledgement of your contributions.
The deadline for the program has already passed, but the good news is that UN Women offers on their official website http://www.unwomen.org/ programs and challenges under different categories, from social to business projects, and anyone can join – even guys! You should consider joining any program not only because of the above benefits but also because it will teach you how to work with others outside of the classroom, and you will be able express your ideas and opinions with people who work under UN Women. Go ahead and explore a new opportunity!
