OBJECTIVES

Coordinating an IWD event? Invite your speaker/s to articulate and explain that exact moment when they themselves took bold action to help improve or develop an aspect of their own livelihood, career or business – or that of another woman’s, or women’s status overall:

ACTIONS

Ask all students to Journal:

  • what was their bold moment?
  • how did they do it?
  • what motivated them?
  • what difference did they make?
  • how can others learn from this?

Host a proactive discussion regarding:

  • what constitutes “bold” action?
  • what conditions are necessary to enable “bold” action?
  • what are the consequences of “bold” action?
  • what are some examples of “bold” action already taken in your context?

Build a “Bold Actions” wall:

  • get students to commit to action
  • post their actions on a “Bold Actions” wall
  • photograph the “Bold Actions” wall

Watch purposeful IWD videos at your event:

  • preview which of these phenomenal IWD videos speak most to your audience, and which ones reinforce and support your own direction
  • or contribute your own IWD video for possible inclusion on the IWD website for others to enjoy

FOLLOW-UP
One month later, ask students if their bold actions have increased? Have they taken bold actions on behalf of someone else? Have they witnessed any BOLD actions done by others?
