Female Wave of Change installs Millennial Board

Millenial Board FWoC

Female Wave of Change

The most germane way of implicating change of social ideas within a society is by the movement of an entire generation. As one generation moves on, their understandings, empathies and operations are gifted to those who will take their place. We, as millennials and the up and coming generation, understand how important it is to have a say in how our future will be moulded.

On the Millenial Board of FWoC our objective is to act as a bridge between the generation of women who have experience in being responsible for making their own future, and the younger generation of girls who will experience the effects of this.

Currently the Millennial Board is made up of five young women: Rayya Alharthi, Bella Rafiki, Yara Schuitema, Elena Louverdis and Palesa Tshabalala, spanning the continents of Europe, Africa and all the way to Oceania.

While we still searching for a final member to complete our team, we come together from all over the world to inspire the feminine transformation and reflecting the worldwide progression towards a global village, one in which we are proud to live.

As Director of Human Networks at Foresight & Culture Advisors, sparks & honey in New York, she leads Strategic Partnerships and is scaling global intelligence and creativity through open collaborative communities and distributed trust systems. Previously, as Director of Innovation at AMP Limited, she architected the corporate innovation eco-system and founded the Amplify Festival which she grew into Australia’s largest business innovation and learning platform.

She has raised two intrepid daughters as a single parent and nothing gives her greater pleasure than discovering our beautiful planet with them as travel companions. She is also about cats and her Zulu nickname is testament to rescuing hundreds of stray cats since she was a little girl.

Female Wave of Change

“I believe in Female Wave of Change because in the VUCA World  (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) we are living in, the traditional masculine archetype of leadership, including female leaders molded in this template, no longer fits the circumstances of an environmentally degraded and exploited planet, increasingly polarized societies, and eroded trust in everything from corporations to government. The feminine archetype of leadership that nurtures the long-term; that looks at the whole, sees complex systems and seeks patterns to make sense and find a path; that understands the essence, the environment and the emotion not just the facts; that integrates feeling and intuition with thinking and reason to inspire and catalyze personal agency; and that acts from a place of learning rather than knowing is better adapted to a VUCA world. This is the Female Wave of Change the world needs.”

We welcome you on board Annalie and let’s create some waves!

Alice Mpofu-Coles is specialist Wavemaker Refugees

Alice Mpofu

Female Wave of Change is very excited to announce Alice Mpofu – Coles accepted the role as Specialist Wavemaker for Refugees. The challenges for refugees are worldwide issues. Alice will be building bridges between women within the Female Wave of Change movement who are refugees or working with this special group anywhere in the world. Alice will start of a Mastermind group with these women, creating awareness, exchanging ideas and experience.

Diplomate

Alice Mpofu-Coles (nee Chigumira) was born in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe in a family of four boys and is now the only surviving member of the family.

She joined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and her first diplomatic posting was in the former Yugoslavia.  Alice was at that time presented with an award by President Chissano of Mozambique for writing in a competition about working in an office with culturally diverse communities. This was achieved while working as a diplomat for the Zimbabwean Government in Mozambique. On returning home she co-founded the first National Secretaries Training Convention in Zimbabwe. She facilitated training for front-line employers, presented talks and was given a Kruger gold coin for her talk on communication with diverse cultures.

Refugee issues

Alice Mpofu-Coles arrived in the UK in 2002 from Zimbabwe. For the past 15 years she has dedicated most of her time on refugee issues.  She volunteered at the Reading Refugee Support Group both as vice-chair and chair. She helps advocate and portray a more positive image of refugees by participating in numerous projects; one of which was to co-start the Zimbabwe Community Groups.  Some of the projects she has been involved in are the football for refugees – bringing communities together. She was awarded an Honorary Master of The Open University for advocating for refugees, services to the public and community. She has taken part in a BBC television documentary and regularly interviews on the plight of refugees, poverty and women. Alice also speaks at events and conferences. She furthers her activism by being actively involved with different organisations in promoting human rights and her unequivocal support to protect the human.

Alices Mpofu

Education is Powerful

“You can lose everything in your life, but no one can take away your knowledge; that’s what makes education so powerful.”

Alice studied Social Work and has an MA in International Relations which she achieved while battling breast cancer. She studied Migration at Oxford University and is currently studying for a PhD at the University of Reading researching the identities, resilience, wellbeing and transnational activities of young people who came to the UK as refugees. She is currently putting some of her life resilience story in writing as a book after losing 7 members of her family inspired by the implausible poem “HOME” – what is a home?. She enjoys reading books and believes that one book a month is the true essence to knowledge.

Why Female Wave of Change

“It does not start with anyone but us and for this to happen the VOICE needs to be attuned to HIGH. This is not only for us but the future generation of young people to listen to them, hear them and decipher their voice. Female refugees struggle to have their voice heard for the changes they need for their communities and families. The Female Wave of Change should lift the voices of those marginalised.”

We welcome Alice as our Specialist Wavemaker!
