from this month we want to launch the Buddy Program, with the aim of quickly welcoming and engaging new members and possibly preparing aspiring candidates for board positions. The overall objective of the program is to make membership in PWA a formative and rewarding experience, which can culminate in taking part in the board of a unique international association of professionals.
The Buddy Program encourages open and effective dialogue between peers and helps create a collaborative learning environment in which to feel less hesitant to raise questions, more keen to share skills and authenticity.
This enables members to develop social networks and the cross-cultural experience.
That experience makes our Association unique.
Practically, Buddy Program Friends will be able to join the current directors as observers of the association’s management and as possible support for the activities that allow us to carry out the PWA programs. The Buddy Program does not necessarily mean that in the next year the Friends will have the responsibility of the position and that they will automatically replace the current Directors.
The new Board Directors and Members will be appointed next May, after open elections.
I invite you to get in touch with our Directors to understand how much passion and ideas they put into their role. They will also talk about how much value they get in return, being part of a cohesive and well-balanced group of professionals, a team of women who practice collective and inclusive leadership.
I report the names of our Directors so that you can recognize and contact them accordingly to your curiosity and keenness.
Public Relation Director – GAIA NINA MARANO
