At Women Can International Inc we have the ICAN philosophy at play.
Our motto is all about self-empowerment, about being able to choose our own pathway.
Each year we choose a new meaning for the acronym, as this keeps us fresh in our vision.
For 2011, our ICAN Motto stands for Integirty, Commitment, Accountability and Now.
We want to display integrity in all that we do.
We want to be fully committed to honouring our word.
We want to be open and accountable to those that we invite into our lives to help and support us.
We want to live in the now, action focused, so that we can begin to build the life we want and find and take our next step in our life journey.
Our events this year will reflect our vision.
We are currently discussing running the following programs in 2011:
- Monthly gathering on 2nd Saturday of the month for women to connect and strengthen their relationships and an opportunity to get together with your girlfriends. This event will be hosted at various coffee shops and in member’s homes around the city. See the Events Calendar for dates and venues.
Personal Challenge Quest
- We are keen to encourage members to engage in community or personal projects that cause growth and strengthen them as women. We’d love to hear your ideas for challenges for 2011 and will do our best to support women who are engaged in a challenge (for example, the team from Breast Care WA who are walking the Kokoda Trail in June 2011 under the guidance of Janette Philp).
Social Media Mentoring Club
- For those who know or don’t know what social media is all about and how to get the most out of it, we are hosting a mentoring program which will consist of a once a month Skype video seminar or training/sharing session to help upskill members and empower them to be techno savvy online. This will be a members only event.
Plus we will be sponsoring and supporting a host of member workshops and other events including:
