No matter what her chosen profession, whether an art teacher, chemist, entrepreneur, athlete, or engineer, she is always seeking the next discovery, looking to transform the path in front of her in a way that will leave her industry — and the world — changed.
There’s a resilience that has her transcend her circumstances to seek a higher level, a broader experience. A new pathway. Some pathways are harder than others. They are filled with violence, war, economic devastation, misogyny, racism, and any number of obstacles that would stop a less resilient human. But not her.
IMPERIA exists to provide a space of welcome, respite, and development for her. It is hard to stand alone with a big idea and a willingness to give it life. From the discussions we’ve held around the world, the feedback we get most often is “I don’t feel so alone now.”
After spending years traveling the planet speaking to 1000+ women of all ages, we’ve gotten pretty clear that no matter what a woman’s social status, country of origin, economic or education level, she has a certain number of characteristics baked in. They are the things that make her an exceptional leader, creator, and humanitarian.
Our Global Innovation Incubator is a leadership development program and discussion forum built specifically to include and leverage the strengths of women based on their unique skills and abilities. The program will include participants from every single country on the planet by 2030.
Designed around our methodology of Self-Directed Empowerment™, our curriculum will take the resilience our participants already have and raise it to a level that is renewable and sustainable — for life. A solar panel for the spirit.
By having women join together to discuss, from a global perspective, the critical questions women are facing, we’re providing a springboard for discovery, collaboration and action around the world. Most importantly, we’re creating an environment for mentorship where different generations can come together to discuss issues that are now very much at the forefront.
Whether part of the cultural and economic discussion of Nepal, the United States, Pakistan, or Uganda, issues such as gender parity and domestic violence affect and connect every woman, and we know that change and understanding will be ignited by our similarities, rather than our differences. We are seeing that in real-time with every conversation we host, whether by video or in person.
For participants, there is no fee — but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a cost. We want every ounce of determination and ambition you have in order to make your vision real. It’s going to take effort, and we are choosing a very small, heavily curated group from around the world. We’re creating the support system we always wanted, but couldn’t find. So if you are chosen to be a part of this experience, you’ll be expected to maintain the level of participation that contributes to the group as well as to your own growth.
HOW DO THE DISCUSSIONS WORK?
At this time, our incubator programming is managed via group video calls. We also do live regional events around the world, so if we host one local to you, you will be invited to attend in person.
WHAT KINDS OF THINGS DO YOU TALK ABOUT?
Our curriculum features guided discussions about resilience, leadership development, team-building, conflict resolution, and being a powerful woman in the world, owning all of what that entails. This has led to some very powerful discussions that transcend borders and cultural experiences to discover the root of what it means to be a human on Planet Earth.
IS WHAT I SHARE CONFIDENTIAL?
Your identity will always remain confidential. We do gather information for the purpose of developing insights and doing research, but our main concern is to ensure your well-being, so nothing identifiable will ever be shared without your explicit permission.
WHERE ARE YOUR LIVE EVENTS HAPPENING?
So far we’ve held events in the United States, Nepal and India. We will add to these as time goes by, because we know the value of face-to-face interactions in discussing matters so important and personal. We’re currently planning a Global Summit to gather all our participants in one place.
DOES IT COST ANYTHING TO PARTICIPATE?
There is no financial cost to participate. You will need an internet connection, but if you’re reading this, you already have one! It will cost your effort and willingness to be fully in the conversation with us.
DID WE MISS ANYTHING?
