Honoring Women Worldwide Framework
Vision: Women Thriving Worldwide
Definition: Honoring exudes actions showing profound respect, deep care, and high regard.
Purpose: To inspire and engage women to choose language that honors and celebrates themselves and each other. By doing so, women will make a profound and positive impact on themselves, each other, their families, their workplace, their communities and the world.
Mission: Mobilize, inspire and honor women from all cultures and generations to lead and achieve personal success.
Focus: During all events, programs and meetings, HWW focuses on leveraging women’s untapped leadership capabilities, building community across cultures and creating a unique global education. HWW is multicultural, multigenerational, and multifaceted.
The cornerstone of these initiatives will be a virtual Women’s Worldwide Center and Hall of Honor starting in 2015, to celebrate and honor women’s contributions, history, sacred customs, societal advances, and profound impact on humankind toward peaceful actions globally.
