WAAW Partners with Ashoka Changemakers

Ashoka Changemakers partners with WAAW Foundation

Advancing women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields is one of the core values and mission of WAAW Foundation. Recently, we partnered with Ashoka Changemakers, a global online community of action that connects people to share ideas, inspire and mentor each other, find and support the best ideas in social innovation.
Changemakers is among the world’s most robust laboratories for launching, refining, and scaling ideas for solving the world’s most pressing social problems. At every level of engagement – from enthusiastic newcomers to experienced social entrepreneurs to corporate executives looking for promising ventures, the site engages individuals who want to make change happen and helps connect them to solutions that address the issues they care about. Changemakers builds on Ashoka’s™ three decades of identifying and selecting leading social entrepreneurs and its goal of an “Everyone a Changemaker” global society.

Changemakers run different competitions to make positive changes in peoples’ lives and currently running a competition that Intel Corporation is sponsoring – She Will Innovate: Technology Solutions Enriching the Lives of Girls. Submit innovative solutions that equip girls and women with new digital technologies or nominate an innovation that you believe in.

Visit www.changemakers.com/girltech from now till August 15, 2012 to nominate or enter a solution. 

Be part of the change, Be a changemaker.
