During 2021 GLOW4equality secured different types of funding for our coaching program, empowering women to empower others. The past months public funding from Swedish Tillväxtverket and by the Bank foundation Sparbanksstiftensen. As of this financing, together with Business Partners and Crowdfunding, financing for the three first coaching groups is secured, our pilot-study.
Reach for Change and one of their Impact Managers were assigned to identify and define GLOW4equlity's work towards impact measurement. Impact results chain, outputs, outcomes and what we actually intend for to happen… overall a very interesting process that left us with new insights and specific steps moving forward.
The Swedish woman Sigrid Strand had an eye for the need for innovations and technical solutions and she noticed that women generally did not tackle the problems in the same way as men. She founded Sigrid Strand foundation that each year hands out a scholarship to a female inventor in Jämtland, Sweden, to help and empower innovative women and at the same time push development of the region’s entrepreneurship.
Some people have a moment in their lives when everything changes. You might not realize at the time, but it changes you profoundly. The moment is often connected to a strong emotion; fear, happiness, devastation or something else. I’ve had a few of those along my journey in life.
