(PRESS RELEASE) — Female Wave of Change, a Netherlands-based social impact global women’s organization, held its first event in the Caribbean region, hosted in St. Lucia as the Activation Weekend, led by the organization’s Caribbean Ambassador Nicole Joseph-Chin.
The goals of this organization are to build ecosystems of social impact and active engagement throughout the region, whilst applying cultural sensitivity and social engagement via the appointment of an Island Ambassador to propel each island’s activities.
This inspiring and intimate gathering was attended by women leaders from St. Lucia, St. Kitts, The Netherlands, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and Suriname.
Thought-inspiring conversations — new ideas for the region, new collaborations — were all positioned for development on the horizon.
The weekend was filled with learning and ignited by positivity, with the incorporating of wellness, innovate thinking, leadership training, photography, all blended to catalyze social impact.
