An incubator that guides women leaders in actualizing innovative social models.
About the Collaboratory
WHAT IT IS
A team of advisors who guides women in birthing their visions and actualizing evolutionary social models, in a radical new way.
WHY THIS IS NEEDED
Our current political, economic and ecological systems are failing – humanity needs a quantum leap. Our community is comprised of women leaders who hold deep wisdom, vast experience and big visions that can address these issues in a new way. Yet these women face financial, social and emotional risks when bringing their fullest potential into the world. The Collaboratory will provide dedicated support to take these women’s initiatives to the next level.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
- Proposals of new social solutions that address needs at the community level
- Self-motivated solutions that translate to models for other communities
- Projects addressing our Visionary Council themes.
Our tailored approach applies Transformational Coaching with Organizational Consulting to support project leads in implementing their visions from the inside out. We understand the elements of birthing a vision in an integrated way. Our team of advisors has the skill set to provide tailored mentoring to address needs and opportunities as they arise.
These are example project discussions underway with members of the WisdomWomen community. We will take applications in the future to invite additional visions.
Community Health Initiative
The Community Health Initiative envisions a model of community health care that is truly health focused. This is a vision to engage in an alternative to traditional health insurance that elevates our individual and communal health and recognizes our interdependence to one another and the Earth. This models will incorporate an online platform to share and receive wisdom, experiences, resources and recommendations that are aligned with our highest values.
RisingWoman is a radical experiment in community-building for all genders and ages. The vision is to create an in-person experience of the new world. A co-creative gathering intended to spark regional collaboration.
This initiative will offer a visionary container for girls and young women to be part of co-creating a more beautiful world. Project Leads will use inspiration from the mission and culture of WisdomWomen to birth this intergenerational offering.
SHE Media is an alternative, independent media platform dedicated to showcasing a new way of BEing in the areas of: Spiritual Politics, Sacred Economics, Education, Alternative Health and Healing, Environment and Earth Consciousness. Media produced may be in the form of short educational pieces, viral videos, music videos, documentary as well as feature film concepts, and talk shows.
We are currently raising funding for a 13-month program that guides up to 5 project teams in incubating their projects. We are exploring methods to track and define success and impact in a new way, and developing a generative model of financing that moves the Collaboratory to sustainability over time.
A New Way
We use the following WisdomWomen principles as guides to support our projects:
VISION LED: We support women to be aligned with and of service to the visions coming through them.
CO-CREATION: We provide mentorship on the relational aspects of collaboration.
EMERGENCE: We create a nurturing environment to act from the unknown vs. planning from the mind.
HONORING FAILURE: We help women to heal wounds and move through fears that may cause them to re-create from the old paradigm.
DEEP LISTENING: We support project leads in listening to intuition, somatic intelligence and other subtle messages.
INSPIRED ACTION: We help women to bring their initiatives to the next evolution, tangibly and operationally.
SACRED HOLDING: We act as visionary midwifes to women who take on the sacred journey of birthing the new world.
TRANSPARENCY: It is not just about the result, but about the process and what we learn, which we share with the greater community.
