Review program plan for WILPFPublished on April, 31 2016
Program Chairs Maureen N. Eke and Odile Hugonot Haber invite members and branches to review and participate in designing the strategic plan for our Section’s programs. The focus is on Advancing Peace, Justice, and Human Rights. An eAlert next week will direct members to the report and seek feedback by May 4.
In early January 2016, a small working group began meeting weekly to organize documents generated during the October 2015 Des Moines Program retreat, feedback from various committee chairs, branch representatives, and individuals into a cohesive, at least, useable draft document to present to the general membership.
Working with more than 80 pages of material, the working group coordinated responses and concluded that the suggestions focused on two dominant areas: 1) program and 2) development. A third area with minor emphasis was communication, but, it intersected with the two dominant areas.
Because the conversation at the Des Moines Program retreat was overwhelmingly about giving us more visibility and coherence, the working group focused on one of the devised “retreat goals” with the most suggestions and for which we also received a lot of feedback: Goal #3: Advancing Peace, Justice, and Human Rights
