More About WGI

Women's Global Initiative (WGI) works closely with a network of corporate, government, university, faith-based, and other partners. Through these partnerships, we create and support innovative new programs that help extend effective existing efforts of women. We are an exclusive membership club, to inspire, inform, and engaged members to promote intercultural, political, and religious dialogue though a unique combination of online and global events.

WGI serves and supports women from every walk of life. The hierarchy of economic empowerment, beginning at the lowest levels of household and community control, is still globally genderized in favor of men. This is a form of structural discrimination that ultimately undermines national interests
and economic possibilities.

Although women are at the center of the household, they are too often disempowered. Investment in women's individual agency balances decision making within the household, resulting in a positive systemic impact upon society.

We believe that efforts toward an equitable national economy must be mirrored in the household. Therefore, gender-based exclusionary elements must be corrected at that most basic level of social organization.

WGI is committed to solving the underlying problems that threaten, undermine, and impair women's ability to lead productive and fulfilling lives. We focus on ameliorating the economic and socio-cultural barriers that limit women's opportunities. We dedicate our resources toward lowering these barriers wherever we encounter them within the communities we serve.

More About ColorComm Conference (C2)

C2 is the ultimate business conference for women of color in communications. Innovative programs, presented by the industry’s top practitioners and thought leaders, will address key issues and predict future trends.

That means everyone can identify with common experiences and challenges and everyone is accessible. With access comes action, the kind of action you need to advance your career, build your business and enhance your personal development.

C2 is for you if you are a woman of color in the vast field of communications. This includes Public Relations, Media Relations, Corporate Communications, Advertising, Journalism, Broadcast, Consulting, Social Media as well as Entrepreneurs, Educators and more. C2 is for you if you want to connect with and learn from the best and the brightest.
